Reviews "There is something ethereal about tasting such a rare vintage. The 1952 Tinta Negra is very dry as one would expect from this style of Madeira. There is a huge amount happening on the complexity front with some bitter nut skin notes with dried flowers and citrus pith. Although quite dry, this does not come across as too severe. An electric wine that is astonishingly refreshing. Massive finish that goes on and on.

Colheita- Single Harvest Tawny Port
The Messias colheita port from the outstanding 1952 vintage has been aged in a barrel until bottling this year.
The extended barrel aging has given this wine a complex fusion of dried fruit and cedar notes. On the palate the wine is smooth and full bodies with plenty nuts and sweet fruit on the palate, fine balance. A tremendous finish which goes on forever. There's no question about the quality on display here.

This wine has light tinges of ruby in the heart of this wine that mostly show a well-evolved color. Initially there was a minty note that will delight port lovers. Concentrated flavours and good length on the finish. This wine has plenty of life left

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe - label damaged - top shoulder
"Tasted at the Ledbury 1950/1952 dinner. Although this vintage of Latour does not have a great reputation, I actually found a lot to admire here. It has an attractive bouquet, dusty black fruits at first but clearing with aeration to reveal a most floral aromatic profile: rose petals in an old antique vase, subtle wild mint notes and a touch of peppermint. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive delineation considering its age: notes of crushed strawberry, cedar, orange rind and tobacco. As with most wines from this vintage, it is austere on the finish, but this Latour has a femininity rarely found at this First Growth estate.
