We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.
The 2004 Burmester Colheita port has a complex nose with dark berries, cress, hints of caramel and coffee. On the palate it is full-bodied with great elegance and balance, smooth, with taste characteristics that reflect the nose and a very long lingering finish.
The 2004 Burmester Colheita Port is a classic wine of exceptional quality and elegance. The Port is made from a single harvest (a "Vintage Tawny") and aged in small 550-litre oak barrels in their Vila Nova de Gaia Cellars. It is bottled at least seven years after the harvest.

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification
From the very good 2004 vintage, the Chateau d'Armailhac has a ripe, fleshy nose of cooked meats, red-berried fruit, leather and roasted herbs. The wine is medium-bodied, and a mature gamey palate. A little cigar box and firm tannin - good finish.

Quinta Do Panascal Vintage Port
The wines of Quinta Do Panascal are rich, with voluptuous fruitiness, mouth filling density and a velvety texture. Being one of the most highly regarded vineyards in the Douro Valley, these ports are a pure expression of the estate’s terroir. These wines are approachable at an earlier stage but still offering the exceptional structure to lay down and enjoy a delicious vintage port for years to come.

Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeous
This large estate has produced a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot offering up notes of roasted herbs and licorice, red and black currants. Medium-bodied, lush and fruity in style.
Price: £27.95 (12 in Stock)
Cotes de Castillion
Nose richly fruity and ripe, mouth tasty, powerful and long. Nice wine with good potential. The tannic structure is present, but roundness and fruit aromas are superimposed and form a rich, complex and suave.
The climate of this vintage was rather classic: overall temperate with a little fear in summer.
June and September experienced above-average temperatures, with the climate of the last month allowing grape ripening and concentration.

Cantenac (Margaux) cru bourges exceptionnel.
Robert Parker renowned wine critic writes of this wine... "I’m not sure this amazing effort doesn’t deserve an outstanding score. A big, flamboyant nose of melted licorice, creme de cassis, smoke, and charcoal is accompanied by deep, opulent, fleshy flavors, low acidity, ripe tannin, and abundant glycerin and fruit. Enjoy this sleeper of the vintage now and over the next 12-15 years. It is sexy stuff!"
Parker rating 89/100 (excellent)

This wine from the very good 2004 is in a good place at the moment. Beautiful wine in a great place right now showing great value. Fruit forward for a Fronsac. Shows subtle signs of ageing. Very nice complexity, merlot, cab S. and cab F. all contributing to the different flavours present. Drinking very well at the moment, I would say this can stay a while longer in the cellar although opening now is certainly worth it.

Margaux, 3rd Growth Classification
In 2004, Ch. Giscours produced a restrained and precise wine. Powerful yet sophisticated, densely fruited yet refined, this is one of the most structured wines of the Margaux appellation. The 2004 vintage is seriously under-rated; its cool style, elegant fruit and structure allows the terroir to shine through.
Price: £69.95 (10 in Stock)
St Julien, 2me Cru Classe
The ’04 has a deep garnet core. The bouquet is light and tobacco-scented, quite earthy with a hint of sous-bois. Perhaps it just lacks a little vigour considering its youth? The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, driven by the acidity, dark brambly black fruit, earthy, a touch of white pepper towards the loose-knit finish.

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe MAGNUM Bottle
With as much Merlot in the blend as the 1990 and 1996 the quality of this wine is as good as any vintage that winemaker Paul Pontallier can remember. This is as fabulous and exciting as the 2000 had been at a similar stage. The nose was simply beautiful - ripe, fine sweet, elegant and powerful with huge potential. The palate is expansive and multi-faceted. Alongside Latour, this is one of the two wines of the vintage.
