1953 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: 1953 was not a declared year, so Ports from the year are difficult to find.
 
Italian: The 1953 vintage was generally an excellent year for Italian wine, as it was for other regions throughout Europe.
 
Bordeaux: Another strong candidate for Bordeaux vintage of the century, the 1953 wines are sumptuous and rich, and have always been exalted highly by critics. The 1953 vintage reached its peak in the 1970s and is now declining slowly, however the wines are still very drinkable and will last many more years. These would make a good 68 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary celebration this year.

Baron de Lustrac, 1953

Armagnac 1953 Vintage (Comes in original Lustrac Box as illustrated)

Armagnac is a grape brandy from the Gascony region of South-Western France. Its closest relative is cognac, another grape brandy from an appellation located about 100 miles north of Armagnac. Armagnac even though it is related to and often confused with cognac, armagnac is very different with regards to its grapes, terroir, distillation, élevage, blending, aromas, tastes and textures. In truth, France's two finest brandies made from wine are not very much alike at all.

Armagnac pre-dates cognac by about 150 years but never achieved the widespread sales figures that its relatives in the Charente obtained.

Chateau Latour, 1953

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (Base of Neck)

*90-93 points -Critics' score Aggregated*

Exciting that this was very much intact. Great color for a sixty year old. Probably at the beginning of a decline curve - but aging gracefully. Smooth and gentle, but retaining its essential body, acidity, and identity. Aromas and flavors were classic aged Pauillac. Touches of cinnamon and clove over red fruit, cigar box, leather and a plush velvet texture. Ultimately this had astonishing strength and character. More grace than power at this stage of life. This is one classy old wine!
