1977 Wine and Port Vintage

Italian: 1977 was a good vintage for Italian Wines. Top regions such as Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines. The wines are fully mature but will still make good drinking today.
 
Bordeaux: 1977-vintage-portPoor weather throughout the growing season led to a very small crop of thin, light 1977 wines, most of which were drunk within a few years of the vintage. As a result, wines originating from this vintage are rare.
 
Spain: A few top producers made very good wine – for example, Martínez Bujanda and Salceda – but most of it was run-of-the-mill and was drunk as joven. A meagre 1% achieved Gran Reserva status.
 
Vintage Port: The 1977 port vintage was a classic Port vintage that was declared by all the major port houses. Even after more than thirty years, the ports are only just becoming approachable. They will last for many more decades. The port wines are concentrated, complex, well structured and balanced. Marked by strong tannins, these wines have great finesse and staying power.

"Tasting Notes:
Heady, with delightfully nutty characteristics. Unctuous, appealing, long with an entirely seductive finish. Salty, umami, the taste of nature. So Complex. Sublime." IWC


The extended barrel ageing 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.

1977 Warre's Vintage Port, 1977

Vintage Port (Comes in a Dark Mocha Leather effect gift box as illustrated + FREE UK Mainland standard 3-5 day delivery).

The Queen served Warres's 1977 Port to the Chinese Premier at the state visit in 2015.

Reviews:

Rich and highly concentrated, it has evolved into to open into a superb Port. Fragrant cassis and prunes nose, fleshy texture, loaded with ripe berry flavours, mellow tannins and a lush fruity finish. Powerful, yet impressively balanced. The 1977s have reached the middle stage of what will prove to be a long and distinguished life. Hugely enjoyable now and it will only get better.



"This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavourful vintage port. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop, and have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style.

Kopke Port

Kopke 40 Year Old Tawny Port

Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines.

Reviews:
Dark tawny with orangey-red highlights. I wouldn't quite call it mahogany in color, but it's close. Very dark, and lots of brown.
Nose: As is typical, lots of (to me) Madeira-like notes.

1977 Armagnac

Baron de Sigognac (Comes in original wooden box as illustrated)

In armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago, baron de sigognac took all the traditional clocks out of his cellars. fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces made. on these clocks, the face had ten divisions instead of twelve. the seconds had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries.
Baron de sigognac had found the core of the mystery of armagnac…
The legend adds that, with time, baron de sigognac came to trust only his palate in telling the age of an armagnac. the clocks were left unwound.

*Cellartracker review*

Following the acquisition of Cockburn’s in 2006, the Symington family were surprised to find 116 cases of 1977 Vintage Port in a corner of the company’s cellars. Cockburn’s famously did not ‘declare’ a 1977 Vintage, although virtually every other Port house did so.

1977 D'Oliveiras Madeira

Terrantez Madeira (Comes in an Oak gift box with silk-liner as illustrated)

"Light medium orange amber color with yellow to clear meniscus and light orange lights; nice, nut oil, melted butter, lightly floral, toasted almond, rich toffee nose; tasty, youthful but poised and complex, toasty, almond, rich lemon, tart orange palate with depth and a very long finish.
*Bottled in 2015*

Terrantez is a near-extinct white-wine variety from the Portuguese island of Madeira, in the eastern Atlantic. It is most likely that the variety was taken to the volcanic archipelago from the Portuguese mainland by early explorers. The 1795 vintage saw a prolific output of long-lived Madeira Terrantez wines, a number of which have survived into the 21st Century.

"...it's outstanding quality... Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, mint and violet. Full-bodied, with medium sweetness and lots of berry and cherry fruit. Very fruity and fresh. Long and lively. Delicious now, but will improve."
James Suckling , Wine Spectator 2007

"Quite deep crimson but with an evolved ruby to brick rim. Rich, round nose – seems at first almost fully evolved and yet with a real punch of acidity and, right at the end a kick of tannin. Lots of interest and life. A can can dancer. Complete and with lots still to give."

2x 1977 Barolo Stabilini & Amarone Cesari (Presented in a silk-lined double dark mocha gift box. Special Offer was £245, now £200)

1977 Barolo Stabilini
Barolos tend to be rich, deeply concentrated full bodied wines with pronounced tannins and acidity. The wines are almost always lightly colored varying from bright ruby to garnet in their youth to more brick and orange hues as they age. Barolos have the potential for a wide range of complex and exotic aromas with tar and roses being common notes. Other aromas include camphor, chocolate, dried fruit, damsons, eucalyptus, leather, licorice, mint, mulberries, plum, spice, strawberries, tobacco, white truffles as well as dried and fresh herbs. The tannins of the wine add texture and serve to balance Barolo's moderate to high alcohol levels.

40 Year Old Graham's

Tawny Port (includes presentation box as pictured)



Graham's 40 Years Old is made from wines of the very highest quality which, following careful selection, are matured in seasoned oak casks of until their peak of maturity is reached. These are among the most demanding and challenging styles of Port to produce requiring great skill and years of experience from the winemaker and blender. It is essential to strike the correct balance between the delicacy and elegance which results from prolonged cask ageing while retaining the fruit quality which lends this old Tawny its structure and longevity.

Golden amber with a pale green tinge at the rim which denotes great quality and class.

1977 Taylor's Vintage Port
Robert Parker writes.... "This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades.

Amarone della Valpolicella, 1977

Cesari

This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella zone (Mezzane and Tregnago hills).

Notes: Color: strong ruby red. Clear and transparent. Bouquet: notes of vanilla and ethereal airs depending on the period of aging in the barrel; notes of sweet fruits such as currants, blueberries, cherries depending on the varieties of grapes. Flavor: wine with a velvety, raisiny character combined with the structure and typical stylish bitterness to give it good balance.

Blandys Madeira, 1977

Terrantez Madeira (Comes in a gift box as illustrated)

Blandy’s Vintage Terrantez 1977 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for nearly 40 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the casks were gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine was regularly racked and when it reached the desired stage of maturity it was bottled. Only 2,404 bottles of this wine were released. Vintage (or Frasquiera) Madeira must be aged in cask for a minimum of 20 years, in practise they are aged for much longer, before being bottled under Madeira Wine Institute supervision.
