1977 Gould Campbell vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:05 Sat 09 Oct 2010

Dry and bitter. Full of bitter tannins with some sweet fruit hidden in the background. Others with experience of good bottles of wine say that this is a bad bottle. NR. Drunk 25 September 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

GC77: to behold a wonderful slightly-purple 80% opacity. Nose: ‟Not a lot. Damp. Not nice.” Alas TCA.
