1957 Wine and Port Vintage

Italian: 1957-vintage-portThe 1957 Italian vintage is a strong candidate for the ‘vintage of the decade’ in what was a run of solid vintages between 1954 and 1958. The main regions of Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines. The 1957 wines are mature but heavy-weights such as Brunello and Barolos will still keep for many years to come.
 
Bordeaux: A very good vintage. A cold summer led to a small crop and wines that had extremely high acidity. The high acidity has enabled the wines to last well beyond later, more celebrated, vintages. Well stored examples of 1957 wines will still be very drinkable now and for a few years to come.
 
Vintage Port: A good vintage although not generally declared. 1957 Port wines are very difficult to get hold of due to the tiny production.

Review:
The 1957 Colheita Tawny Port was seen before, but it's worth revisiting in the USA, since it's a great wine. This is also the new 2015 bottling. It has 127 grams per litre of residual sugar. It is stunning how youthful this is. Lush and rich on opening, it has mature flavours that emerge, easily demonstrating the complexity and concentrated aromatics one expects. Gripping on the finish, this delivers fruit flavour and seems to linger indefinitely.

Bordeaux, 1957

Chateau Troplong Mondot

Bordeaux, in the south-west of France, needs little introduction to anyone with an interest in wine. One of the world's most prolific wine regions, it also manages to rank among the most famous and prestigious. The secrets of Bordeaux's wine success (other than magical Bordeaux Blend) are its three trump cards: diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines are the dry, medium-bodied reds that made the region famous.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1957

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (In neck, bin soiled label)

The 1957 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild has a brick, aged appearance but offers up Lafite’s classic cedar and lead pencil perfume. The wine is a bit light compared to top vintages but at age 50, this wine is doing just fine.

Chateau Montrose, 1957

St Estephe 2nd Growth Classification

Château Montrose is located in the east of St Estèphe (the northern most of the great Médoc communes), just north of the hamlet of Marbuzet, on a gravel knoll only 800 metres from the Gironde estuary. As far as the great wines of Bordeaux go Château Montrose is somewhat of a youngster having been founded in 1815. However this beautiful vineyard has produced one of Bordeaux's most consistent and respected wines for over 150 years. It is considered to be one of the top St Estèphe's and is known as the “Latour of St Estèphe”

This wine had a solid ruby core turning brown at the edges. Notes of iodine, bandaid, leather and barnyard. On the palate I got leather, brown sugar, tawny port notes with faint notes or red fruit. Dry with no detectable tannins. Medium plus finish.

Reviews: Glorious copper/mahogany colour. Sweet, gentle nose, but complex showing creme brulee, figs. Medium bodied on the palate, no obvious botrytis, sweet on initial entry with figs, caramel and a note of custard, perhaps falling away a little on the finish but picked up with a sweet dessert.

Spanna, 1957

Berteletti - Riserva

Spanna has often been cited by wine experts as one of Italy’s greatest ageing wines. Spanna’s longevity can be attributed, at least in part, to the addition of smaller amounts of less tannic, more acidic grape varieties. Tasting notes: The nose opens up beautifully after about an hour and the wine has gorgeous ripe and sweet fruit, nice acidity, and perfectly softened tannins. This is a very individual and complex wine.

Chateau Haut Brion, 1957

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 90 Points - Robert Parker ***

Reviews: "In January, 1997, I had the exceptionally smoky, sweet, rich, impressively endowed 1957 Haut-Brion. The wine was fully mature, as evidenced by its dark garnet color with considerable rust. The wine was very aromatic, plump, and succulently textured, with fleshy flavors, plenty of glycerin, and sweet fruit. It is another example of an unheralded vintage producing a top flight wine.
