1949 Wine and Port Vintage

The finest wines from 1949 are still in full blossom displaying remarkable richness and concentration. This is one of the quartet of remarkable vintages of the late 1940's - 1949, 1948, 1947 and 1945!

Renowned wine critic Robert Parker states that this is the greatest of the four vintages possessing greater balance, harmony, and fruit than the 1945's and more complexity than the 1948's. In short the wines are magnificent!
Vintage Port: A poor year for the Oporto ports.
 
Italian: 1949 wine exibits a good vintage for most of the Italian regions. The long lived Barolos are still drinking well today.

The 1949 Chateau Rieussec has a golden orange colour with mild, dark roast marzipan, orange peel and marmalade on the nose.

Chateau Yquem, 1949

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

***94 Points-The Wine Cellar Insider***
***93 Points- Aggregated Critic Score***

The 1949 Chateau d' Yquem reveals a burnished amber color, then an intense and rich bouquet with honey, quince and mandarin, burnt caramel, vanilla and crème brulee. Still fresh considering the age, will drink perfectly now but also keep for many years to come. Simply beautiful and harmonious!


Reviews:
Honey, burnt orange sugar, apricots, pineapples, vanilla and crème brulee soar from the glass. But, this wine is not produced in the style of modern Yquems. This does not have the nearly the same level of sweetness or viscosity found in the best vintages of the 80’s and 90’s.

Tokaji, 1949

Aszu Essencia (Half Litre, 50cl)

This rare 1949 Tokaji Aszu Essencia is a sweet wine of stunning concentration and complexity. A rich complex wine with incredibly deep concentration, bitter oranges, ginger, manuka honey aromas and flavours, but though super sweet it is perfectly balanced with succulent citrus acidity. Harmony, balance and depth are absolutely world class.

After the Essencia, the Aszú Essencia (often confounded with the Essencia) is the second highest quality level among Tokaj wines. Its preparation is the same as that for the Aszú, and it is produced only in excellent years. The quality level is not indicated anymore by the number of puttonyos.
