1977 Gould Campbell

Post by AHB » 21:54 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Dark red, no bricking but in early maturity; 90% opaque. Fresh flowers and ripe fruit on the nose, sweet purple plums and ripe damson. Fat and figgy. Lovely mouthfeel, full of fruit but with lively and spicy tannins giving a vibrant flavour profile. Full of fruit but with delicate flower perfume, with clarifying acidity; big palate presence. Great dark cherry and black chocolate aftertaste and huge finish. Wonderful port that still needs several years to soften and mature. 94/100. Drunk 03-Mar-16.
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

It's about 1 in 10 that show well with me at the moment.
