Vinhos Barbeito

The Rare Wine Co. Charleston Sercial Special Reserve Madeira

I haven’t been surprised in a while, till a few thimblefuls of this. So light on the tongue, so fresh, yet deep & profoundly lip smacking. A dry Madeira w all kinds of brown & savory flavors. Was after a meal of roasted chicken & carrots but can imagine any food combination. Rare Wine Co.importer — a month ago

Can’t get enough. Trying to savor the light touch that weighs on my palette with brown sugar notes that don’t overdo it. Oh well. I’ll have to get another bottle.

My buddy got it at Flatiron Wines, in NYC @Kevin Hyatt, but I noticed Westchester Wine Warehouse also carries it. Happy Holidays- my Eurocave is still going strong btw!

Étonnante dichotomie entre le nez, qui annonce du sucre, et la bouche, qui en est à peu près dépourvue. Belle complexité. — 5 months ago

Vintage Madeira Sercial 1977

Smashing! So harmonious and relatively pure/clean. VA adds the perfect lift, balanced components throughout. Keen acid, so youthful in its vibrancy and life. Almost Scotch-esqe with its peaty/earthy tones. It’s spiced, like walking through an exotic spice market. The length and finish incredible, wrapping everything up with roasted walnuts, honey, and succulent dried fruit. Drinks like a great aged Cognac or Armagnac. — 2 months ago

Garrafeira Madeira Sercial 1964

At 50+ years, this is worthy of discussion. Firmly dry as a Sercial should be. But rich and nutty, almost palate cleansing. And just a baby... — 7 months ago
