Calem Port, 1980

Quinta da Foz Vintage Port

This 1980 Vintage Port from Calem has outstanding provenance! This bottle has been stored at the Cale cellars on Porto since bottling until it was acquired by us earlier this year.

The 1980 Calem Quinta da Foz has a beautiful tawny colour indicating maturity. On the nose it has toffee, butterscotch, creme caramel and sweet candy. It is medium bodied and fully mature with jammy red fruit and raisins, again butterscotch notes and caramel which all follow through into a long lingering finish. Superb and ready for drinking now.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild , 1980

Paulliac 1er Cru Grand Classe (Top shoulder)

** 92 Points Neil Martin ***

Reviews
"A complete shock to everyone who tasted this blind at La Trouvaille. Tasted alongside Lynch Bages 66, a little fatter on the nose with notes of cedar and cooked meats. Good poise and freshness. The palate has good depth, smooth tannins and quite vivacious. Full of life and vigour. Where does the concentration come from? Who cares - a wine that stuck two fingers up at all its critics who have ever dismissed this wine. Lovely. Tasted February 2004." Neil Martin Wine Journal

Croft Port, 1980

Quinta da Roeda

From the famous Quinta da Roeda vineyards, this 1980 single quinta vintage port has a garnet -tawny appearance. The nose is of dried fruit candy and walnuts. On the palate the wine is mature and at its peak balanced and elegant. The finish is perhaps a little shorter than one would like, but all round this is a excellent value port.

Dao, 1980

Porta dos Cavaleiros

Caves S. Joao, established in 1920, became a dominant force in Portuguese wine making in the early 20th century with their houses Porta dos Cavaleiros in Dao and Frei Joao in Bairrada. Given the shifting trends in consumer preferences, Bairrada and Dao fell to obscurity in the 1990s when critical influence drove the demand for bigger, extracted, warmer climate wines. As in all things, however, what comes around goes around! Sure enough, 20 years later savvy consumers and food-conscious sommeliers are looking for finesse and freshness and heading back to Bairrada and Dao. Wines that when young had a vegetal character,

Dolcetto d'Alba, 1980

Terre del Barolo

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.

Dom Perignon, 1980

Champagne

Produced only in the finest vintages, Dom Perignon is Moet et Chandon's prestige cuvee Champagne. Usually a blend of half-and-half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (give or take a few per cent here or there), it is rightly regarded as one of the very finest Champagnes, with the ability to age gracefully over many years. The wine is named after Pierre Perignon, the monk at the Abbey of Hautvillers who, legend has it, 'discovered Champagne' in the 17th Century and announced it was like "drinking stars".

Reviews: "Fresh and elegant, with characteristic doughy, yeasty flavors and a touch of honey and mocha.
