1966 Messias Vintage Port

Post by Axel P » 07:26 Fri 01 Oct 2010

After having had the Messias 1970 many times, my expectations were to open a decent port with only little time to go.

The Messias 66 showed an intense dark colour with only a slight rim. Perfectly integrated Bouquet with lots of chocolate and caramel. The palate goes along with this, underlining the excellent structure with the alcohol and tannins perfectly integrated. Long aftertaste with minty and chocolate notes. Very good. 18

This wine is a must buy as it will be quite cheap to get at auctions.
