Madeira, 1952

MBV - Tinta Negra - Bottled by Barbeito

This is a rare and very limited release of the 1952 Madeira from the family cellars. The bottles are in perfect condition. There is something ethereal about tasting such a rare vintage. The 1952 Tinta Negra is very dry as one would expect from this style of Madeira. There is a huge amount happening on the complexity front with some bitter nut skin notes with dried flowers and citrus pith. Although quite dry, this does not come across as too severe. An electric wine that is astonishingly refreshing. Massive finish that goes on and on.

Messias Port, 1952

Colheta Single Harvest Tawny Port

The Messias colheita port from the outstanding 1952 vintage has been aged in a barrel until bottling this year.

The extended barrel aging has given this wine a complex fusion of dried fruit and cedar notes. On the palate the wine is smooth and full bodies with plenty nuts and sweet fruit on the palate, fine balance. A tremendous finish which goes on forever. There's no question about the quality on display here.

Niepoort Port, 1952

Colheita Port (Traditional Bottle)

This wine has light tinges of ruby in the heart of this wine that mostly show a well-evolved color. Initially there was a minty note that will delight port lovers. Concentrated flavours and good length on the finish. This wine has plenty of life left

Chateau l'Evangile, 1952

Pomerol

Brilliant ruby with bricking at the rim. Mature nose of tobacco, fruit, and earth. Elegant, plummy fruit and moderate acidity on the palate; reasonably precise with good lightness of touch. Fully mature, but still keeps on going.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1952

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe high shoulder label bin soiled

** 87 points Robert Parker ***

While attractive, the sweet, spicy, gingery nose lacks ripeness of fruit. In the mouth, this wine exhibits structured, firm, medium-bodied flavors, good depth, but tough tannins and relatively high acidity in the finish. Although there is plenty of character, the wine finishes with a lean, rustic feel.
