Tasted from #coravin this #taylorfladgate was powerful. The alcohol overwhelmed everything. I was able to get some fun prune and chocolate notes on the incredible length but this will either need some more time or a good long #decant #vintageport #portugal #port #touriganacional #ctbucklinwine

1963 Taylor Fladgate Port. Wine charity dinner bought by H&C S, hosted at the house. Dessert course. Drank alongside '75 Chateau d'Yquem. This was delicious w the salted caramel. Easier than the d'Yquem to sip without food. Great!

Little volatile on the nose and less fruit on the palate than other recent bottles. Still delicious though.

Beautifully elegant and mature. Now we know why you drink 50+ year old port!
