Vintage Armagnac (Comes in original Sigognac Box as illustrated)
In armagnac, legend has it that, one day long ago, baron de sigognac took all the traditional clocks out of his cellars. fascinated by the mystery surrounding the way armagnac ages, he had some very strange timepieces made. on these clocks, the face had ten divisions instead of twelve. the seconds had become years, the big hand moved only once a decade and the hour hand marked the centuries.
Baron de sigognac had found the core of the mystery of armagnac…
The legend adds that, with time, baron de sigognac came to trust only his palate in telling the age of an armagnac. the clocks were left unwound.

"What a stunning 1963 vintage port this is! The bouquet draws you in, does not drag you in with its alcohol and reveals a fresh, well defined nose with a nutty edge, hints of cigar box and allspice. The palate is beautifully balanced, understated on the entry but building all the time, flashes of eucalyptus leading towards a more extrovert, clove tinged finish that hangs around the palate. Gorgeous Grahams! Tasted May 2009." Neil Martin, Wine Journal

From the outstanding 1963 vintage. This port is a beautiful pale red with distinct bricking. Tropical fruits on the nose, with fresh mint clearly showing. Sweet brown sugar impact; hot mid-palate and a sweet late palate full of stewed plums. Big levels of acidity. Very hot aftertaste. Gentle finish of dry espresso, very long and with plums.
Reviews "Bright and vibrant appearance. Superb dried fruit and nut nose - christmas cakey, with really good concentrated spicy black fruit streak with tar. Good fruit on attack - concentrated and remarkably fresh. Very smooth and rich. Very classy indeed.

** 96/100 - Wine Spectator **
One of the great vintages of the century, and one of the best wines ever released by Sandeman. Classic aromas of figs and prunes, powerful, rich and sweet, with tremendous length.
"This may be one of the most underrated '63s made. Its deep red color gives little indication of the wine's age, and there is an abundance of youthful, rich fruit on the nose and palate. Full tannins and an assertive finish back up everything." 96/100 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator
The 1963 Sandeman has less of a deep-ruby/purple colour, but it does offer a spice-box, fruitcake sort of aroma, mildly sweet, medium- to full-bodied flavours, and a ripe, tasty finish.

Outstanding Vintage Port from one of the best vintages of the last century.
This bottle is part of a 300+ bottle 1963 port collection that was laid down as birth present. It remained perfectly stored in the original family cellars until purchase by VWP. The bottles have branded capsules and were stored unlabelled. We have added a new facsimile label for presentation purposes - if preferred, these can be supplied unlabelled.
“…for me this is now one of the best and most elegant of all the ‘63s. I have made a total of sixteen notes since the early 1980s when it emerged, fully fledged and totally delicious”.
