Taylor Fladgate 40 Year Old Tawny Porto 750ml

About the product
A sublime Port of very great age which shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation
have concentrated this extraordinary wine to an exceptional density, with a powerful nose of dried fruit, honey and a
touch of spice. Impressions of nutmeg, roasted coffee and an intense nuttiness converge both in the bouquet and on
the palate. The wine’s rich, intense, voluptuous, almost viscous texture culminate in a finish of incredible length.
About the producer

Often described as the Rolls-Royce of the Porto industry
Known for inventing the late bottled vintage category, and still the category’s standard-bearer
The first Port firm to produce single-quinta vintage Porto
Maintains exacting standards through continuous investments in vineyards and by aging extensive tawny stocks
The family became the first Porto shipper to purchase vineyards in the Douro Valley, in 1744.
The only Porto company that has remained 100% family run throughout its history
Taylor Fladgate has earned a global reputation for producing wines of remarkable consistency and exceptional
quality. It is known especially for its sought-after vintage Portos and venerable tawnies, and for pioneering the late
bottled vintage style, a category it still dominates. Today Taylor Fladgate is proud to be the only Porto company that
has remained 100% family run throughout its history.

The origins of Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman lie in the 1670s, with Job Bearsley, an English merchant in Minho.
Bearsley’s initial activities were in the wool trade, and the “4XX” logo, originally his woolmark, was branded on bales
of wool, and later, casks of Port wine, for shipment. The firm was officially founded in 1692, and Bearsley moved his
offices to Oporto; this date places Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman as one of Oporto’s oldest Port houses. Bearsley’s son
Peter was the first Englishman, in the early 1700s, to venture into the primitive reaches of the Upper Douro to
purchase wines. Another son, Bartholomew, acquired the first British-owned property in the Douro in 1744, the Lugar
das Lages. Located at Salgueiral, close to the old town of Regua, and including the 18th-century Casa dos
Alambiques, it is still among Taylor Fladgate’s operative holdings.

Wine Spectator review
Score: 95
This is a beauty, with a mix of date, dried cherry, hazelnut husk, green tea, singed sandalwood and bitter almond
notes all racing along together in unison. Shows tension and clarity on the very lengthy finish. Drink now. 300 cases
