    Domaine du Mas Blanc Banyuls “Cuvée St. Martin” 1959

    Domaine du Mas Blanc Banyuls “Cuvée St. Martin” 1959

    FranceRoussillonBanyuls AOP

    17.5% Alc/Vol • Fortified, Oxidative

    The Domaine du Mas Blanc Banyuls “Cuvée St. Martin” 1959 represents the legacy of Docteur Parcé and three generations of the Parcé family, a testament to their vision and advocacy of one of the great terroirs of France. Named after the feast day in October when Banyuls grapes were traditionally harvested, it comes from what is perhaps the prized of the domaine's vineyards: Coume del Mas, a 1.5-hectare, east-facing parcel that sits at 350-meters, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

    PortugalMadeira DOC

    20.0% Alc/Vol • Fortified, Fully Oxidized, Oxidative

    “The bouquet is outstanding, as it offers up a deep and complex blend of heather, orange zest, cherries, peaches, a bit of garrigue, honey cake, salty soil tones and a touch of new leather. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and powerfully built in style, with a rock solid core, tangy acids that are beautifully buried in sweetness and outstanding grip and balance on the very long finish that closes with a nice touch of savory nuances ... There is an awful lot to like in this very long and very complex wine.” —John Gilman, “View from the Cellar” Full details

    PortugalMadeira DOC

    20.0% Alc/Vol • Fortified, Fully Oxidized, Oxidative

    “As we taste the 1954 Malmsey we are reminded of the local saying about the Malvazia grape: ‘Don't eat them, don't give them away, for wine God made them.’ The wine is beginning to show a bit of rancio character, with earthy notes, exotic spices, molasses and brown sugar, backed up with a tangy fresh acidity that helps the wine retain balance; on the palate, the wine is elegant yet so thick it is almost viscous. Delicious wine.” (Charles Curtis, MW) Among the classic grape varieties on the island, Malvasia is the sweetest and most unctuous. Full details

    PortugalMadeira DOC

    20.0% Alc/Vol • Fortified, Fully Oxidized, Oxidative

    Medium-dark brown with a tiny hint of garnet. Explodes on the nose, with blood orange, hot bricks, bitter orange, overripe banana, and plenty of lift. Spectacular texture, creamy but with little hint of sweetness, pumping out flavors of dark citrus, salty toffee, very fine oolong, and turning a tiny bit sweeter toward the back, with the characteristic citrus tang of the variety. A pleasing and energizing bitterness frames the finish, which is endless and citric, with some characteristics of greengages and highland Scotch. Tremendous. Full details
