1967 Vintage Report

Italian: 1967 Italian Wines represent an outstanding vintage which was probably the best of the decade. Good growing conditions particularly in Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines that will last for many years to come.

 
Bordeaux: The 1967 wine vintage is generally considered to be a good, solid vintage that favoured the vineyards in regions that harvested early such as Pomerol, Graves and St Emilion. The 1967 wines will not improve further with age and are still very drinkable and pleasant.

 
Vintage Port: Very few port vintages were produced in 1967 but some houses declared. The best ports show good structure and elegant fruit and will keep for many years to come.

1967 Kopke

Colheita Port (Includes Kopke presentation box).

Kopke Port is the oldest port house. Established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League, the House of Kopke is the eldest Porto wine export firm. Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

Review:
Deep amber colour with greenish hints. In the nose stands-out the exuberance of the dried fruits with outstanding hazelnut suggestions. In the mouth, its excellent structure prevails under a desirable essence of caramel and chocolate.

1967 Messias, 1967

Colheita - Single Harvest Tawny Port (SPECIAL OFFER WAS £139 now £129)

*** 95 Points Robert Parker ***

The Messias colheita port from the outstanding 1967 vintage has been aged in a barrel until bottling this year.

Reviews:
The 1967 Colheita Port, a blend from old vines coming in with 149 grams per liter of residual sugar, is the latest in the winery's releases of old tawnies. The winery says that the "harvest was perfect with hot days and fresh nights... The wine had a good balance with acidity as a result and then matured for 45 years in Vila Nova de Gaia." This is super. Lively and elegant, it has wonderful concentration of old-tawny flavors on the finish: heavy molasses mingled with caramel and laced with a hint of treacle.

Sandeman, 1967

Vintage Port (Library stock from Sandeman cellars, Oporto. Comes in an Oak gift box with Silk Liner)

These bottles were recently acquired from Sandeman's cellars in Oporto as part of their historic library stock. They have been especially relabelled and re-corked by Sandeman.

The 1967 Sandeman's initial robustness has mellowed and softened still providing a beautiful structure.

Superb, levels and good labels.

Vintage port is one of the most reliable wines due to its high sugar content.

Will need standing for a couple of days and careful decanting but will go on until 2030 if cellared carefully.

1967 Amarone della Valpolicella

Sartori (Price includes solid oak gift box with silk liner as illustrated)

Tasting notes:
Intense red colour with garnet flecks, typical aroma with hints of red fruit jam, spicy finish and full velvety body.

From a vineyard situated in the hills of the northern part of Verona the carefully selected grapes are put in small plastic crates and dried in ventilated rooms for about three months. When they reach the perfect grade of dryness they are pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The fermentation lasts for about 30 days and develops high alcohol content. After a period in concrete tanks, where it undergoes Malolactic Fermentation, the wine is transferred to large oak casks of medium and large size for about three years.

1967 Barolo

Damilano (price includes dark mocha leather effect Gift Box with Silk liner as illustrated)

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.

1967 Chateau Guiraud, 1967

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe (Price includes dark mocha leather effect gift box with silk liner as illustrated)

Amber-bronze in colour. Stewed apricot / apricot skin and toffee on the nose. High intensity.

On the palate the toffee holds centre ground with apricot in close support, but there's both complexity (including some nice seville orange marmalade, notably coming through in strength on the finish) and creeping madeirisation - you can see where this wine is going. For all that toffee (and a reasonably luscious body), the wine might start sweet, but it heads clearly towards dryness on the finish. Very good.

*Library stock from Krohn Cellars*
These bottles have impeccable provenance having been held in Krohn's own cellars since bottling. They were imported by VWP in December 2016.

Tasting note: Outstanding!! Pale tawny fading to amber on the rim. The nose is complex and multi-dimensional, notes of wild herbs, plum and mocha, coffee, tobacco around around a warm core. The palate displays a smooth, silky texture and finishes with a burst of rich mellow flavour. The finish is long and elegant. A, finely constituted port that is drinking well now but with careful cellaring it will hold for a few years.

The smooth velvety palate is lifted by a crisp acidity which gives the wine an attractive freshness in spite of its age.

Barbaresco, 1967

Contratto Giuseppe

Dark red color with a bit of browning on the edge. Lots of dirt and some acidity on the nose. Lots of tannin left in this one. Must of been a real beast when young. Cherry, tea and a small amount of barnyard on the palate.

Barbaresco is one of the great wines of Italy's north-western Piedmont region. This aristocratic red has its vineyards situated in the Langhe, on the right-hand side of the Tanaro river and extending from the area north-east of Alba to the communes of Barbaresco, Nieve and Treiso. The dominant variety grown is Nebbiolo, but Dolcetto and Barbera also play a part. The vines are generally grown on limestone-rich marl soils.
