1959 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: The 1959 port wine vintage was a poor one. There were no declarations for vintage port and only a few single harvest colheitas were made. Our wine buyer's recommendation for a 60th gift would be to select a "60 years of port" gift such as the Taylor's 60 Years of Port , which comprises two bottles whose years add up to 60! This makes an excellent 60 year old wine gift for a 60th birthday or anniversary.

 
Italian: The 1959 Italian wine vintage was a very good vintage that has often been overlooked in favour of the outstanding 1958 and 1961 vintages. The wines produced exhibit a deep colour, rich intensity and have a good structure. The top quality Italian reds such as Barolo and Brunello are still drinking well today.
 
Bordeaux: 1959 was one of the great vintages of the century producing wines that are full-bodied, extremely alcoholic and opulent, with high degrees of tannin and extract. Initially the wines were criticised for having low acidity, however over time the wines have matured more slowly than the great vintage of 1961 and now after six decades the wines surpass the 1961s in many cases. Well-stored 1959 wines are still at their peak and will remain so for years to come.

Review
"No, the vintage date of this wine is not an error. Just released, it is a selection of old-vine Primitivo grown south of Taranto and only now hitting the market. No one seems to know whether the fermentation was stopped by fortifying the wine or if it just stopped on its own as a result of the superlative richness of the must, but the fact remains that, with close to 14% of alcohol, it is as sweet as a great Recioto, a wine which it greatly resembles.

Baron de Lustrac, 1959

Armagnac 1959 Vintage

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.

Rioja, 1959

AGE Bodegas Unidas Siglo Saco Rosso, Gran Reserva

Shows that wonderful, classic old school Rioja nose of sweet cherries, cedar, beef blood and hints of dustiness. There's also a lactic note that blows off quickly. On the palate it's mature, but also sports some youthful qualities. The cherries initially have that dessicated quality to them that comes from age, but retains sweetness and are joined by earth, leather and spice flavors with worn wood. With air the cherry flavors really blossomed. Lovely sweetness throughout the mid-palate, though the finish does dry out a little. It's a little too butch to call it elegant, though it's certainly harmonious.

Spanna, 1959

New

Valsesia

Spanna has often been cited by wine experts as one of Italy’s greatest ageing wines. Spanna’s longevity can be attributed, at least in part, to the addition of smaller amounts of less tannic, more acidic grape varieties. Tasting notes: The nose opens up beautifully after about an hour and the wine has gorgeous ripe and sweet fruit, nice acidity, and perfectly softened tannins.

*** 93 Points Average Cellar Tracker Reviews ***

Reviews:
"Quite bricked through but still a deep core, the nose leaps from the glass with cedar, cigar box and still a bit of fruit. Delicious in the mouth, a lot more fruit with black currants still vibrant and full of life, there's a bit of tobacco and just the faintest of tannins to give it a lovely texture. Really long. But the perfume is the thing here which is just mesmerising." Cellar Tracker Review 2014.
