Port Tasting - Whitehall Agencies
Date: Jun 30/09, Tue Time: 04:00:00-07:30:00 Style: Drop-In
Port Tasting - Stephen Marentette of Whitehall Agencies provided an early opportunity to taste the recently declared 2007 Vintage Ports of both Taylor Fladgate and Croft.
For comparison, we also sampled 2003 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port (Robert Parker 98+ Points) and 2003 Croft Vintage Port (Wine Spectator 96 Points).
Whitehall also presented a number of other seriously high end wines from their portfolio from Tuscany, Chile and Lebanon including:
2007 Vina Montes, Montes Alpha, Cabernet Sauvignon
1995 Chateau Musar White
1998 Chateau Musar Red
The hat was passed around and proceeds donated to Delisle Youth Services. www.delisleyouth.org
Normally I'd be drinking beer on the Black Bull patio this time of year, but the calibre of wines at this tasting made this June day in the cellar all worthwhile.
