1966 Gould Campbell

Post by jdaw1 » 14:52 Mon 16 Apr 2012

Some of the obvious suspects gathered, with Stephanie T. Galley (friend of wife of jdaw1), in The Bung Hole, to drink some 1966s.

GC66. Dark red, 40% opaque. Mint on the nose. Lighter than the Croft, heat, and strawberry. Slight mocha bitterness mid palate. Excellent, even though lighter.

BBR bottled. Deep red, very rich in colour, 50% opaque. Plummy nose, rich and sweet. Velvety texture on entry; less intense initially on the palate than the Croft, but grows impressively with late spiciness on the mid-palate. Big and spicy aftertaste, dry and tingling finish of great length. Really good, tannins still showing on the finish! 93/100.
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
