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.

In original Wooden Gift Box
In armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago, baron de sigognac took all the traditional clocks out of his cellars. fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces made. on these clocks, the face had ten divisions instead of twelve. the seconds had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries.
Baron de sigognac had found the core of the mystery of armagnac…
The legend adds that, with time, baron de sigognac came to trust only his palate in telling the age of an armagnac. the clocks were left unwound.

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."

"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.
