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.

Chateau Margaux, 1959

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 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.

Merlot, 1959

New

Trevisiol

Merlot can also produce a delightful and intriguing pure varietal wine. While Merlot has a long history of use as a blending wine, pure Merlot wines have been relatively slow in gaining momentum in Italy. That too has changed and today some of the world’s best Merlot wines bear Italian labels. The Trentino wine is from well-positioned and carefully maintained hillside vineyards near the city of Trento in northeastern Italy.

Nebbiolo, 1959

New

Bersano (50 cl bottle)

The Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

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.
