1957 Vintage Report

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.

Fonseca's 60 Years of Tawny Port

A Fonseca 40 Year and a 20 Year Old Tawny Port in a deluxe Gift Box with Accessories

Fonseca 60 Years of Port Gift

A bottle of 40 year old Tawny and a bottle of 20 year old Tawny in a deluxe gift box with accessories.

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.

Kopke Port, 1957

Colheita Port (Comes in Original Kopke box as illustrated).

*** 96 Points Gold Medal, III Concurso Internacional da Cidade do Porto ***

***95 Points- Mark Squires
eRobertParker.com #223 Mar 2016***

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.

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”

Tokaji, 1957

Szamorodni Szaraz Dry (Half litre, 50cl)

This is a dry Szamorodni and can be best compared with a dry version of Sherry, or a Vin Jaune, which makes him an excellent aperitif wine.

In years that produce only few noble rotten berries, selecting those berries manually would not be economical. In that case, berries are processed as they were harvested, without any selection. However, a certain quantity of Aszú berries is obligatory for the Szamorodni. So, this wine is made from intire grape bunches which are partially affected by botrytis cinerea. Depending on their proportion, the resulting wine will be either a dry or a sweet Szamorodni.

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.
