1956 Wine and Port Vintage

Italian: While the rest of Europe suffered poor weather, Italy produced a good vintage. Top regions such as Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines. The 1956 wines are fully mature but will still make good drinking today, especially long-lived grapes such as Barolo - these would make a great 64 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary this year.
 
Bordeaux: Unfortunately, poor weather conditions led to the production of one of the worst vintages on record for Bordeaux - avoid!

Tokaji, 1956

Asju Essencia (Half litre, 50cl)

This 1956 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 can be found, 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.
