H&H Sercial Madeira 1971 bottle

H&H Sercial Madeira 1971

PortugalMadeira DOC 20.0% ABV

20.0% ABV • Fortified, Fully Oxidized, Oxidative

Dark golden brown without any hint of orange. Lifted nose of ancient raisins, roasted dried apricots, burning chalk, incredibly harmonious. Explosive, with acidity washing over the middle and back palate and throwing flavors back into the middle. Sweet earth, oyster shell, crazy roast-apricot tang, and incredibly concentrated. Gets drier and fresher on the finish, with an inherent concentration. Sercial is the palest and the driest of the classical madeira varieties. Full details

Domaine de Rombeau Rivesaltes Rancio 1971

FranceRoussillonRivesaltes AOP 18.5% ABV

18.5% 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
