Ryst-Dupeyon Armagnac, 1984

Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
50cl bottle

The 1984 Dupeyron Armagnac is the expression of a single year and has a unique character associated with the year and the cask in which it has been stored. These vintages are bottled at the alcohol level in which they naturally come out of the cask. There is a wonderful contrast between the sweet and sour flavours of wood, amplified by the strong alcoholic degree. Rich palate feeling the alcohol and the concentration of dry plums, spicy with persistent flavour of rancio and of spices, but round, soft and long in the finish. The tannins are very present, but full-bodied and round.

The Maison Ryst-Dupeyon was founded by Joseph Dupeyron in 1905.

D'Oliveiras Madeira, 1984

Boal Madeira

"Aromas of raisin and coffee. Taste corresponds to aromas, but adds fresh mint and nuts. Sweet, but with balancing acidity. Complex.
By far the best of the few Madeiras I have tasted. (92 points)

Near perfect with tiramisu and desserts made with cream and dried fruits.

Graham's Port, 1984

Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port
Grahams Library stock release

The 1984 Grahams Malvados has been stored in Grahams cellars until purchase by VWP in 2021 - The bottles are in exceptional condition.

The 1984 still has some youth evident on the colour. A delightful, fruit-laden nose, which takes considerable time in the glass to open up. Macerated black fruits and figs, covered in a thin layer of chocolate. Rich, full bodied, but quite forward and fruit dominated on the palate. A lovely texture, quite creamy and sweet, to match this fruit. Some powerful tannins in the background, although these really do play a minor role, only showing on the finish.

Taylor's Port, 1984

Late Bottled Vintage Port

Late Bottled Vintage port is from a single year. The wine ages 4-6 years in old oak casks (opposed to Vintage that ages 2-3). LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour. This led to the idea in the 1960s to age the wine 4 to 6 years in large casks before bottling it.

LBV's display the style of a Vintage Port with its deep colour and concentration of fruit but with a more mature character caused by the longer ageing in wood.

Hermitage La Chapelle, 1984

Paul Jaboulet Aine

Lots of things going on in this bottle. Sweet red berries, very ripe, spices and even a floral element. With time it developped a pleasant note of smoked sausage, fat sausage meet, also some olive. Opulent palate and rather sweet finish. Excellent.
