Taylor's Port, 1955

Vintage Port (Unlabelled Label, Vintage on Capsule)

"An opage blockbuster when young, astringent and unready up until the early 1980's. In the early 1990's still fairly deep coloured; a vast, deep, high-toned, spicy nose, fairly sweet, full bodied packed with fruit extract and tannin and acidity.." Marcus Bent ****

Taylor's Port, 1955

Vintage Port
Unlabelled | Embossed Capsules | Very Top Shoulder Level

Taylors 1955 Vintage Port.
Review
The only vintage Taylor’s declared in the 1950s. According to the Fladgate Partnership, ‘one of the most underrated vintages of the century’. Taylor’s own two great vineyards in the Douro, Quinta de Vargellas and Quinta de Terra Feita. Both are categorised grade A - the highest possible rating. In years when Taylor’s produces a classic vintage, wines from these two estates are blended together. As they are some 20 miles apart, and subject to very different micro climates, they combine to produce a powerful, long lived and complex vintage port. In 1955 there was a heatwave at the end of April and early May.

Warre's Vintage Port, 1955

Vintage Port
Wine Society Label | very top shoulder / in neck

"Burnt orange colour, firm rim; 60% opaque. Lovely nose, attractive strawberry jam but modest in volume with concentrated oranges. Delightful texture, rich and flavoursome impact. Meaty tones, but with rich and conentrated mandarin providing great balance. Tingling tannins show on the aftertaste, then a terrific finish of great length with a birch-sap tang. Great port. 93/100. Decanted 4½ hours" The Port Forum

Fonseca Port, 1955

Vintage Port (Unlabelled bottle good level)

The 1955 was the only year declared by Fonseca in the 50s. An underrated, indeed almost forgotten, vintage that deserves to be rediscovered.

Notes on the year
The year was marked by an excellent ripening season with hot weather in July and August meaning that the crop was perfectly mature towards the end of September. Most of the well known shippers declared 1955.

Tasting Note
Medium to deep red, with a remarkably youthful ruby edge. Incredible richness and almost young grapey fruit character. As it breathes it opens to reveal spicy mature dark fruit aromas. On the palate it fills the mouth with round, marzipan richness mixed with full chocolate flavour.

“One of my all-time favourite Ports...A big wine that has evolved perfectly... mature but rosy-cheeked; glorious bouquet, a fabulous fragrance erupting out of its depths. Sweet, refined, silky yet still tannic, fleshy yet firm”.Michael Broadbent, Vintage Wine, Published 2002
