1955 Cockburn vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:46 Sat 16 Jan 2010

Slightly smelly on the nose, showing signs of bottle stink. Sweet and elegant in the mouth; very big flavours and really good structure. Delicious aftertaste, soft and gentle elegance on the length. A wine which is elegance personified. 88/100. Drunk 17 Dec 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
