1994 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: A 1994 Vintage Port makes a great 26 year old wine gift for a 26th birthday or anniversary: 1994 was one of the greatest vintages of the 20th Century that produced classic, monumental port wines with rich fruit character. While these wines can be approached in their youth, the best need 20 years in bottle, making them mature for drinking now or perfect to age for another 20 years. Our wine buyer highly recommends the 1994 Taylor's Vintage Port , an outstanding Vintage Port that scored an incredible 100 points from Wine Spectator and 97 from Robert Parker.
 
Italian: In Tuscany, the Chianti Classico, Vino Nobile and Brunello had a very good year with a warm early Spring. The good weather conditions carried through to the harvest season with healthy, ripe fruit. In Piedmont prolonged rain caused serious problems, however a few producers still made good Barolo and Barbaresco wines.
 
Bordeaux: The 1994 vintage is generally rated as good but a little inconsistent. The top estates produced some very fine wines that are far superior to those in the poor years between 1991 and 1993. The best 1994 Bordeaux wines are characterised by high tannin levels with rich fruit and should mature well over the next few years.
 
Spain: This was the ‘Aaah!’ vintage; after three years of drought and indifferent quality, nature relented and provided one of the best vintages of the century (compared by many producers with the legendary 1964). The grapes showed tremendous ripeness, colour and extract. This was a truly great vintage in the making, although (or perhaps because) it was relatively low in quantity.

Ryst-Dupeyon Armagnac, 1994

Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
50cl bottle

The 1994 Dupeyron Armagnac is the expression of a single year and has a unique character associated with the year and the cask in which it has been stored. These vintages are bottled at the alcohol level in which they naturally come out of the cask. There is a wonderful contrast between the sweet and sour flavours of wood, amplified by the strong alcoholic degree. Rich palate feeling the alcohol and the concentration of dry plums, spicy with persistent flavour of rancio and of spices, but round, soft and long in the finish. The tannins are very present, but full-bodied and round.

The Maison Ryst-Dupeyon was founded by Joseph Dupeyron in 1905.

1994 Calem Vintage Port, 1994

Vintage Port
Excellent provenance | Calem Library Stock

The Calem 1994 Vintage Port has been stored in the Calem cellars and released in 2020 specially for VWP.

The 1994 Calem Vintage Port has a deep garnet colour, with a hint of blue in the meniscus. Black fruits and blackberries dominate on the nose with tobacco and spirits. Beautiful in the mouth with alcohol and resolved tannins, great fruit still dominates. Lovely finish. 92/100 TC VWP 11/19

Vivino review:
It has a dense, even, opaque crimson colour, with a very rich, dark well of black fruit and floral aromas, with all sorts of mineral and delicately spicy nuances. On the palate this has a beautifully focused sweetness, with a supple, svelte quality of black fruits, that is pure and very long and silky through the mid palate.

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste, 1994

Pauillac 5th Growth Classification

*** 90 Points - Robert Parker ***

"Grand-Puy-Lacoste is the drinker's Pauillac. It is not an investment wine (having been largely forgotten by the trophy hunters and investors looking to make a quick buck), although certain vintages (1982 and 1990) have tripled in price. Grand-Puy-Lacoste, usually loaded with character and personality, has enjoyed three fine vintages in 1993-95, with each of these years under-priced for such quality. The 1994 has turned out to be an outstanding effort for this estate. The wine reveals even more flesh than it did prior to bottling, as well as the high tannin that marks many of this vintage's wines.

Chateau Haut Brion, 1994

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 92 Points Robert Parker ***

Reviews
"This is one of the surprise sleeper wines of the vintage which has more successes than many people suspect in spite of all the rain. The tremendous drainage enjoyed by the Haut Brion vineyard worked in its favor during this wet September harvest. The color is deep plum/ruby with a bit of lightening at the edge. Notes of compost, truffle, earth, spice box, dried herbs, and licorice compete with sweet black cherry and currant fruit. The wine is medium-bodied, with a relatively plump, chewy feel to it. It is certainly one of the top half dozen or so wines of the vintage.

Chateau Rauzan-Segla, 1994

The 1994 wine from Rauzan Segla is dominated by its tannin and structure. There is good weight, medium body, and an impression of ripeness and sweet fruit, but patience will most definitely be required.

Croft Port, 1994

Vintage Port

"The 1994 Croft exhibits an impressive dark ruby/purple color, and a developed, forward, more evolved style than expected. It is moderately sweet, full-bodied, expansive, pure, and rich, but made in an up-front, flattering style. Although outstanding, it is not one of the superstars of the vintage. It will keep for twenty years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020". 90 points. Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

Fonseca Port, 1994

Vintage Port

*** 97 Points - Parker ***

reviews: "One of the most spectacular 1994s, this opaque purple-colored wine is an exotic, flamboyant, ostentatious port. Extremely fragrant and pungent, with a flashy display of jammy cassis, pepper, licorice, and truffles, this port is an attention-grabber. Awesomely rich, and full-bodied, with superb length, richness, and overall balance, it possesses a huge mid-palate, layers of flavor, an unctuous texture, and a blockbuster finish. Everything is in place, with the brandy and tannin well-integrated, even concealed by the masses of fruit and glycerin. This wine will drink fabulously well at age ten, but keep for up to thirty years".

Graham's Port, 1994

1994 Single Harvest Tawny Port (450 cl) Jeroboam Size

The 1994 Grahams Single Harvest has incredible aromas of dried fruit leaping from the glass. The palate is intensely flavoured with lovely notes of dried orange, and spice wrapped up in a full-bodied smooth texture. This is offset by a lovely note of molasses and figs. Perfectly balanced with a long finish this Graham’s 1994 Tawny Port is a treat and a rarity.

Bontà delle Valli

Inferno is one of five viticultural sub-zones specifically identified as producing Valtellina wines of particularly high quality: the other four are Grumello, Sassella, Maroggia and Valgella. Inferno means 'hell' in Italian, and refers to the slopes between Sondrio town and the village of Tresivio.

Just across Sondrio to the west is Sassella, the finest of the Valtellina sub-zones.

Quinta de la Rosa, 1994

Vintage Port

1994 was a great vintage for Port, with a slow and long ripening period to add a great deal of complexity to the wine. This example of vintage Port, from Qunita de la Rosa, is a wine of concentration and complexity but with great restraint as one can always expect from la Rosa. The wine is now entering its drinking "window" and will give great pleasure from now until 2030 at least.
The la Rosa 1994 Vintage Port is more delicate and subtle than say the muscular 1992, and though likely to last as long, will come forward for drinking sooner. It has intense colour and is a nicely elegant and complex wine which will cellar well.

Quinta do Passadouro, 1994

Quinta do Passadouro, Vintage Port

In the nose a lot of alcohol. It has a powerful nose but it’s not very complex. Liquorice, dark fruit, dark chocolate. There is also an amaretto cookie element coming through which is quite nice.
Taste: A creamy velvet texture. At the start a lot of freshness which is followed up very quickly with a lot of alcohol that attacks the palate. Dried fruit, some liquorice, and a really nice acidity.

The critics of the Gault Millau count the Palatine Knipser with the highest rating of 5 stars even the world's top.

Skeffington Port, 1994

Vintage Port

***91 Points- CellarTracker***

Fourth bottle from a half case purchased ten years ago and in fine fettle. Mature and drinking well now at 22 years of age, still vigorous and with gentle tertiary development in the form of some nutty warmth, ever so slightly stalky on the nose. Core of black cherries and dark chocolate on the palate, medium weight and intensity, light tannins, no excessive alcoholic heat, good length. A solid performance.
