Chateau Gruaud Larose, 1947
St Julien, 2me Grand Cru Classe
Cellar Tracker review of this wine posted in 2017.
"Typical extremely dark colour, unevolved nose of impressive powerful impenetrable fruit, great density and richness of older g-ls from big vintages. reminiscent of 61, 45, 28, and almost as backward as an 1865 drunk in 1980. still closed after 2 hours but delicious, powerful, dense, dark fruit with plenty of tannin; and very long finish. could still improve for 20+ years."

Fonseca 70 Years of Port Gift
Fonseca 40, 20 and 10 Year Tawny Port in a Triple Wooden Gift Box
Fonseca 40 Year Old Tawny (75cl):
Tawny Ports of 40 years of age, the oldest designation allowed, are true rarities.
This sublime port of great age and rarity has been aged in casks for an average age of 40 years. The port shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated the wine to an exceptional density. Impressions of clove, nutmeg and an intense nuttiness converge both on the bouquet and palate. The wine's lush, almost viscous texture culminates in a finish of incredible length.

Aszu Essencia (Half Litre, 50cl)
This 1947 Tokaji Aszu Essencia is a sweet wine of stunning concentration and complexity. A rich complex wine with incredibly deep concentration, bitter oranges, ginger, manuka honey aromas and flavours, but though super sweet it is perfectly balanced with succulent citrus acidity. Harmony, balance and depth, these are absolutely world class.
After the Essencia, the Aszú Essencia (often confounded with the Essencia) is the second highest quality level among Tokaj wines. Its preparation is the same as that for the Aszú, and it is produced only in excellent years. The quality level is not indicated anymore by the number of puttonyos. …

Giacomo Borgogno - Riserva
Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.
