Read Decanter's tasting note for Fonseca 1963 vintage Port with spellbinding depth, bitter chocolate and thick-cut marmalade in perfect balance.
Served at the bicentenary dinner in June, I was served from two bottles. One was fragrant and floral, sweet and elegant with gentle tannic grip, but soft and redolent of a tawny on the finish. The other, on which I base this score, had the focus and dark chocolate intensity one would expect from this great year. Spellbinding depth, with bitter chocolate and thick-cut marmalade in perfect balance.
