Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1982
Quinta do Noval Nacional
86/100 Wine Spectator
90/100 Wine Doctor
Noval is particularly famous for its Nacional, a Port produced in some years only from a 2 hectare parcel at the heart of the Noval vineyard where ungrafted vines survive. This is remarkable, because phylloxera, the root munching aphid that necessitates grafting vines onto resistant American rootstock, is endemic in the Douro
"This a gloriously wild, rich, sensual port with a rich spicy nose and flavour and a sweet, full glorious length and aftertaste" Drink now - 2033. M Broadbent *****
"Pale cherry colour. Evolved spicy, earthy nose with dusty, herby notes. …

Veuve Clicquot, 1982
Fantastic colour shows some age but still vibrant and fine bubbles. On the nose brioche, vanilla and to me lots of foie gras and apples of course. Completely different on the palate with lots of acidity and citrus shining through. This wine still has fruit and acidity enough to continue developing into a very fine old champagne.

D'Oliveiras Verdelho Madeira
"Aromas of raisin and coffee. Taste corresponds to aromas, but adds fresh mint and nuts. Sweet, but with balancing acidity. Complex.
By far the best of the few Madeiras I have tasted. (92 points)
" Cellar Tracker Review"
Try this medium-dry Madeira as an aperitif or with your main course. It is a perfect accompaniment to smoked ham, smoked salmon and various cooked meats as well as seafood. Try it with cottage cheese, ripened cheeses, nut-like cheeses and hazelnuts.

1981 D'Oliveiras Madeira, 1981
Raisins, plums, walnuts and a hint of prunes in this wonderful Madeira. The scent fills the room as soon as it is open. Pouring it into the glass you notice the crystal clear golden brown color with hints of red. You swirl and smell, noticing the raisins and the walnuts. You take a sip, the flavors of raisins and plums fills the front of your mouth, not too sweet. You swish and swallow, the walnuts taking over in the back of the mouth. The taste lingers…

1981 Ryst-Dupeyon Armagnac, 1981
Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
The 1981 Dupeyron Armagnac is the expression of a single year and has a unique character associated with the year and the cask in which it has been stored. These vintages are bottled at the alcohol level in which they naturally come out of the cask. There is a wonderful contrast between the sweet and sour flavours of wood, amplified by the strong alcoholic degree. Rich palate feeling the alcohol and the concentration of dry plums, spicy with persistent flavour of rancio and of spices, but round, soft and long in the finish. The tannins are very present, but full-bodied and round.
The Maison Ryst-Dupeyon was founded by Joseph Dupeyron in 1905. …

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.

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

40 Year Old Messias
Very pale amber/tawny/orange colour. Fine and delicate aromas of hazelnuts and candied citrus. Quince marmalade character, delicate in style, with finesse and poise. Seemingly quite dry in style towards the finish (not as obviously rich as some here), and supremely refined.

Blandys Madeira, 1981
Malmsey Madeira 37.5cl HALF BOTTLE
Deep amber-red in colour; lifted, toasted and singed on the nose, really rather wonderful, this sings from the glass; gentle honeyed sweetness, super-concentrated mid-palate, so pure yet complex too with a toasty-savoury back drop, rich (100g/l residual sugar) but the acidity running through leads to a vibrant finish. Nothing soupy about this: wonderful precision and definition.

For 200 years, Blandy’s Madeira has been synonymous with quality Madeira wine. The Blandy’s are unique in being the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage their own original wine company. …
