1952 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port:


1962-wine-gifts
A few shippers produced some reasonable 1952 ports, although it was only a small production - not a declared year. Colheita (single harvest tawny) Ports from this year are lovely, and would make an excellent 70 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary celebration this year.
 
Italian: Long lasting 1952 wines such as Barolo are still drinking well.
 
Bordeaux: 1952 was a fine year for Bordeaux Wines, with the right bank (St-Emilion and Pomerol) on top form.

Burmester Port, 1952

Colheita Port in branded gift tube
Special Offer Was £575 | Now £425
95 Points - Robert Parker

We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.


Reviews:
"(2015) Lovely dark caramel colour, with some truffle and tea notes, edges of olive and green fruits (fig). The maturity on the palate is obvious, again with fabulous sweetness and brown sugar richness, Muscovado and walnuts, but the hallmark of the fresh orange and lemon acidity plays against that and the coffee and walnut cake sweetness and richness." Tom Cannavan Winepages.com

Madeira, 1952

MBV - Tinta Negra - Bottled by Barbeito

This is a rare and very limited release of the 1952 Madeira from the family cellars. That we were able to acquire. bottled in 2017. The bottles are in perfect condition.

Reviews "There is something ethereal about tasting such a rare vintage. The 1952 Tinta Negra is very dry as one would expect from this style of Madeira. There is a huge amount happening on the complexity front with some bitter nut skin notes with dried flowers and citrus pith. Although quite dry, this does not come across as too severe. An electric wine that is astonishingly refreshing. Massive finish that goes on and on.

Messias, 1952

Sale

Colheita- Single Harvest Tawny Port

The Messias colheita port from the outstanding 1952 vintage has been aged in a barrel until bottling in 2020.
The extended barrel aging 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 forever. There's no question about the quality on display here.

Barolo, 1952

Giacomo Borgogno - Riserva

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 no problem at all.

Chateau Latour, 1952

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe -
Mid shoulder level, lightly bin-soiled label

"Tasted at the Ledbury 1950/1952 dinner. Although this vintage of Latour does not have a great reputation, I actually found a lot to admire here. It has an attractive bouquet, dusty black fruits at first but clearing with aeration to reveal a most floral aromatic profile: rose petals in an old antique vase, subtle wild mint notes and a touch of peppermint. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive delineation considering its age: notes of crushed strawberry, cedar, orange rind and tobacco. As with most wines from this vintage, it is austere on the finish, but this Latour has a femininity rarely found at this First Growth estate.
