Cockburn’s is one of the most highly reputed port houses and one of the oldest to boot. They couldn’t have asked for a better vintage to mark their 200th anniversary. The result is an outstanding, 94 point port that will repay a few years’ cellaring.
Renowned port house Cockburn’s was founded in 1815. They marked their bicentenary with a 2015 port from their Quinta dos Canais and Quinta do Vale Coelho vineyards in the Douro Superior. In a press release, owners the Symingtons said: “Rain fell on 15th and 16th September and the best grapes at Quinta dos Canais and Quinta do Vale Coelho were picked from the 21st until 4th October; these were the 13 days when the finest ports were made in the Douro Superior.” Cockburn’s 2015 Bicentenary Vintage Port is a limited release of just 3,500 cases. Expert James Suckling calls it “Very fine and polished with ultra-fine tannins. Medium sweet. Fresh and extremely clean.” This port will be talked about for decades to come. One to hide away until 2025.
"Fantastic aromas of crushed berries and flowers. Some mineral undertones. Very fine and polished"
