H&H Sercial Madeira 1964 bottle

H&H Sercial Madeira 1964

PortugalMadeira DOC 20.0% ABV

20.0% ABV • Fortified, Fully Oxidized, Oxidative

Medium brown with a ruddy cast. Incredibly expressive on the nose, with notes of fresh seaweed, bergamot, unpeated island Scotch, and the finest of Taiwanese oolongs. On the palate, the attack is very slightly sweeter and orangey, and the acid is very complex, never getting in the way. Some fresh and dried flowers, and Riesling-y apple and petrol, turning drier and more energetic the whole way to a mineral and energetic finish. A captivating wine that still allows a pairing with oysters or other shellfish. Full details

Domaine de Rombeau Rivesaltes Rancio 1964

FranceRoussillonRivesaltes AOP 19.0% ABV

19.0% ABV • Fully Oxidized, Oxidative

Domaine de Rombeau is renowned for having one of the most replete libraries of old Rivesaltes in the region, with wines dating back to the early 20th century. The wines highlight indigenous varieties Grenache blanc, Grenache gris and Macabeu, as well as the varied elevage—with wines aged in glass demijohns and ancient barrique, indoors and out—that sets Roussillon apart. Some vintages slumbered in barrel for more than 50 years, and the ascription ‘Rancio’ denotes the prized characteristics that the wines assume over decades. Hand-picked from single barrels in minute quantities, these wines offer a glimpse into the celebrated history of the appellation. Full details
