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.
