We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.
The 2004 vintage Burmester Colheita port wine 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

Malmsey Colheita Madeira (H/Litre, 50cl)
Includes Original Gift Box
Made entirely from Malmsey grapes, which produce the sweetest style of Madeira, this 2004 vintage will match fantastically well with rich desserts or cheeses.
Blandy’s Colheita Malmsey 2004 was aged for 12 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, where by the wine is gently heated by warm air in the lofts of the company’s south-facing lodge in Funchal. Over the years the casks are transferred from the top floor to the middle floor and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine is regularly racked during the ageing process and is finally bottled when the desired balance of maturity is reached.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast.
A properly velvet-textured Pomerol, showing some of the richness of the Merlot in 2004. This is a well-balanced, intensely rich wine, the black plum fruit flavors powering through the tannins, and with a good lift of fresh acidity to finish. ROGER VOSS (90 Points Wine enthusiast)

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe
A Chateau Margaux 2004 vintage bordeaux wine. With as much Merlot in the blend as the 1990 and 1996, the quality of this wine is as good as any vintage that the winemaker Paul Pontallier could remember. This is as fabulous and as exciting as the 2000 vintage 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.

Bekaar Valley, Gaston Hochar
The 2004 Musar is a blend of Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Carignan from this well-known and highly regarded Lebanese winery.
Chateau Musar 2004 Red Wine is a great vintage with a blend of power, complexity and endless fruit. On the palate, this wine is full of ripe, black cherries and balanced, rich fruits and spices. This wine is perfectly harmonious and balanced and expresses the power of the 2009 vintage in the finest way.
Chateau Musar is often referred to as the Lafite of the Lebanon. Wine maker Gaston Hochar defied the odds producing a string of great wines during the Lebanon War.

The 2004 CNDP has herbs, iron and black fruits with some leather in the mix and cherry on the finish. Not overdone. Perfect food wine

La Crau Vieux Telegraphe
Also classic and aging gracefully, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape is a medium to full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling effort, especially in the vintage. Kirsch, blackberry, garrigue, nori (seaweed/sushi wrapper which I seem to always find in this wine) and ample crushed-rock notes all round out the bouquet and on the palate, it’s nicely concentrated, with fine tannin and integrated acidity. It can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade. Feb 2014, www.robertparker.com
