Single Harvest Tawny Port
1963 Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle. Exclusive to VWP.
This rare port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 1963 harvest until it was bottled this year.
Tasting Notes: The 1963 Port from Palmer has a light oak colour with a verdant edge on the rim highlighting a colheita of exceptional age and quality. Much elegance on the nose with orange peel, walnuts, figs and a touch of honey. On the palate there is a lightness that is balanced by a good acidity. This port wine delivers a beautiful flavour supported by a long, long finish. Outstanding.
The wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting.

Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
*** Exclusive to VWP ***
The 1963 Réserve Joseph 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.
This Armagnac Réserve Joseph vintage 1963 with a deep color with mahogany nuances will be harmonious on the palate. Its aromas of apricot will reveal themselves magnificently in a balloon glass heated in the palm of your hand. It is a round eau de vie to be enjoyed as a digestive.

Very bright red-orange. Very bright and clear. The nose is full of fruity red berries, caramel, jammy plums and strawberries. On the palate is overwhelmingly fruity with lovely caramel notes. The tannins have resolved into softness and the finish is very long. Excellent.

Quinta da Foz
Wine Society Label
Bottled by the Wine Society. Mature rose red colour, 30% opaque. Little showing on the nose, although there is some faint sweet fruit that is reminiscent of sweet raspberries dusted with icing sugar. The dusty icing sugar and some candy floss creates the initial impact on the palate. Air on the palate improves the flavours, allowing the fruit to grow well until this port delivers a satisfying mouthful of flavour on the late palate. There is a delicious medium-weight aftertaste and a finish that shows a burnt orange edge throughout the long length. Reviewed & Tasted in 2018 by Alex Bridgeman, The Port Forum.

Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classe
We quote from the tasting notes of greatbordeauxwines.com tasting in 2005:-
"Château d’Yquem 1963 87 points
Tasted in April 2005. Brown like cola. Aromas of mocca, burnt coffee beans and caramel. It had some sweetness on the palate but very little of noble rot. This was light and well-balanced wine with fine aftertaste."

Excellent Provenance - well-stored
"Perfectly integrated and showing cherry, raspberry, baker's spices and hints of fig on the nose and palate. With air the fruit became more plummy in character and picked up more complex dried fruit notes. It's sweet, but not Graham's or Fonseca sweet and there's actually some nice acidity to the wine that keeps it fresh. Seamless with the alcohol sewn into the fabric of the wine nicely." Cellar Tracker 2012
'Bright ruby red. Full rich red chocolate spicy aroma. Ripe rich round slightly hot fruit on the palate'. Cellar Tracker tasted 2005.

Jacobsens Copenhagen slip labels
The Croft 1963 Vintage Port is a legendary wine from a great vintage. This is a rare dumpy bottle from a Danish bottler.
1963 Vintage Ports are among the most sought-after of all Ports and it's easy to see why. The quality was superb and 25 shippers declared wines which have taken time to reach their best, a wait that was wholly worthwhile. The 1963 Croft is still full, sweet, concentrated and delicious, with a backbone that will see it give great pleasure for a long time to come. Broadbent.
Reviews: Deep burnt orange in colour, 50% opaque. Sweet oranges on the nose, full of candied orange zest like you find for sale in the markets of Dubrovnik.
