"We only bottle when the Nacional sings" Christian Seely uses to say and it certainly does sing in 2011:

Very complex and intensive, but balanced Bouquet with massive fruit and some spicy background notes. The palate reveals what the nose promises: Tannins, Acidity and the powerful fruit all side by side in a perfect match. Very, very long and lasting aftertaste. This Noval will easily fit in with the big years of 1994, 1997, 2000 and 2003, too early to say if it will ever match the great 1963. 20/20

Thanks for the note Axel, not surprised to see you drinking well!

Do you know that they're releasing this at? Hard to imagine it will not reward investment.

Also, you should be in London in late June so as to attend Wimbledon and our 1963 tasting (June 27rd)!

Look forward to catching up

Chris

I saw it offered for £319 recently, but all available bottles were gone in a few hours.

For investment purposes I believe this is a strong buy as I received orders in Germany (!) - still not a port drinking country - which was more than the german lot in total. It hits the market at a little more than half the retail price for the 2003. So grab every bottle that you can get as the prices will explode as with the 2003, 2000, 1997, 1994, in fact with everything under Christians regime.

Berry's have sold out of their allocation, which was priced at £395 per bottle, in bond.
