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 Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
