Kopke Port, 2005

WHITE Colheita Port (Includes Kopke presentation box)

The 2005 Kopke White port has a cool, light-amber color. This unique white colheita derives from the traditional white grapes of the Porto e Douro region. Starting with aromas of a Pear Clafouti and burnt sugar, this elegant port delivers luscious flavors of Japanese pear-apple, with accents of hazelnut, nutmeg and orange zest. The lingering grapefruit finish provides the perfect balance for the sweetness.

Food Pairing:
Shows finesse and sophistication when combined with caramel desserts, dried fruits and spices, like caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tatin tart, burnt cream and Cheeses of minimum intensity.

***91 Points - Wine Enthusiast ***

From the very good 2005 vintage the Fonseca Panascal offers an opaque purple black with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is rich and exuberant, brimming with dark, seductive blackberry and cassis aromas laced with liquorice and treacle.

SCORES & TASTING NOTES

2005 Taylor's Quinta De Vargellas
*** 92 points Neil Martin ***
"A deep black/opaque hue. A very pure, well-defined nose of black cherries, cassis and plum with a certain “coolness” about it. The palate is full-bodied but for me just lacking a little definition and tension. But very pure again with notes of plum, liquorice, a hint of black pepper and quite a fleshy, supple finish.

Chateau Batailley, 2005

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification

Review:

On the nose, this 2005 Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe is clean, pronounced and black fruit-led. As we may expect from a “left bank” wine that is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is the characteristics of this grape that lead. Black cherry and ripe plum along with a restrained note of blackcurrant form the bulk of the bouquet of this lovely Pauillac, although subtle oak notes of cedar and toast are also present and well integrated. Good, long finish.




Once in the mouth, this 2005 Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe Pauillac is dry, with a high level of acidity and tannin that look to make this wine suitable for prolonged aging.

Price: £54.95 (12 in Stock)

Chateau Cantemerle, 2005

Haut Medoc 5me Cru Classe

This bordeaux has bags of fruit, tannin and acidity, all tied up in an impeccably-balanced, polished package. Sweet cassis fruit is accompanied by a spicy edge and a long, fresh lift. This is very pretty now but ideally wants another five years to really get going, and will easily keep for another five after that.

Price: £39.00 (11 in Stock)
