One bottle of Guedes Vintage port 1908. Bottle has been stored in good conditions

1908 is rated by Michael Broadbent as a great vintage - he gives the vintage overall a five star rating.


"Rain was copious, everything points to a fine vintage: the weather during the week 14th-21st has been thundery with days of hot sun....conditions seem to be similar to those preceeding the vintage of 1896...the grapes free from any disease and have matured evenly and well...everything points to 1908 turning out the best year since the phylloxera swept away all the Portuguese vines"
29 September 1908

"All the party are most favourably impressed with the quality of the 1908's."
11 April 1909.


Tasting note:

"This is flatout incredible! 100 years old and so vital! The cork was a problem of course, but it went relatively well. The bottle was set up straight for a few days and decanted very carefully. It was the last wine of a memorable evening (including a corked Cheval Blanc 1988...) but this wine easily made all the other wines forget, including Latour 1989. A completely evolved nose, every element in the proper place, no edges. Then tasting the wine... I just cannot describe this in any way that does justice to this miracle. And the finish! So elegant yet powerful. Certainly the best vintage port I ever had and straight into my top-10 of all time wines."" 99 points CellarTracker 2008
