Tawny Ports are normally a blend of an average age (i.e. 10 Year Old, 20 Year Old, etc) so it is rare to see a single vintage tawny and even rarer to see one which has been aged for 50 years before bottling.
As a sneaky peak into our cellars, we can offer these lovely and mature Bordeaux from vintages 1989-2005.

The excellent Krug Grand Cuvee 163 Edition is really quite something, 95points from Antonio Galloni and now no longer produced. The good news is we still have a small number of cases available of this exquisite Champagne!
I attended a very exciting tasting and dinner last week at Zucca restaurant on Bermondsey Street. The theme was comparing 2009 and 2010 white and red Burgundy, which is particularly interesting as the two vintages have produced many wines which are lauded by just about everyone, though for very different reasons. Ripeness and generosity have always been the hallmarks of the 2009 vintage while purity and complexity have been those of the 2010 vintage. However, these are generalities and it was great to be able to taste 3 pairs of white Burgundies and 6 pairs of red Burgundies to gain a better understanding of the two vintages.
A group of wine trade colleagues and customers convened once again for a horizontal Burgundy tasting last week at Medlar Restaurant. It was the turn of the 2011 vintage for White Burgundy and it threw up some interesting conclusions.
