We’ve never properly tasted the wines of Poças, a house best known for its wood-aged Ports, but which also makes VP and LBV. I have tasted too few of all categories.

It is envisaged — so not a firm plan — that we will start with a flight of wood-aged, tawnies or colheitas or both. Then with and after food we will concentrate on the bottle-aged, VPs and LBVs.

Likely as not, many of the bottles will come from or via Tony C. of Vintage Wine & Port, for which thanks. But others with gems are encouraged to reveal them here.

Yes please.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Yes please, I rather like the wines I've tried of theirs.

<edit> I have the 1997 Colheita that George found underwhelming during yesterday's virtual gathering, as well as the 2017 VP.

I was wondering why João Geirinhas would be participating in this event. Seemed odd.

@ rich_n I was drinking the 2000 Colheita yesterday, not the 1997 Colheita. It was indeed underwhelming.

I have the 1964 Colheita and the 2011 VP which I could offer up for this tasting. I have higher hopes of both.

The 1964 Poças Colheita is one of the best of the vintage. I think I slightly prefer the 1964 Noval Colheita, but I can't think of any others that I'd rate over the Poças. It's a great Colheita from a pretty mediocre (at best) year.

@ Glenn E. - Thank you, you have heightened my higher hopes. I've never had it, it was just a wandering-round-the-internet-one-weekend-ooh-that-looks-an-interesting-bottle purchase.

You are indeed correct, I was drinking the '97 but I shall blame lockdown-brain for not being able to remember that detail.

Julian, this means I have the 2000 Colheita, not the '97.

Hopefully not too late but yes please! I have the 64 colheita (which I agree with Glenn is great and knocked the Taylor 64 into a cocked hat when last tasted side by side-when Glenn was present I think). Also have the 77, 85 and 2000 VPs.
