Cossart Gordon Bual Vintage Madeira 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A rather unusuaul nose with a profound quinine element to the floral and herbal tones. With air panchetta and chestnut tones emerge with a slight musty edge. Moderately sweet in the mouth with cocoa and roasted chestnut flavors on the mid-palate that yield to a sugary, green walnut tone on the narrow, short finish. Very front loaded 86pts

Cossart Gordon & Co. was established in 1745 and is the oldest company in the Madeira Wine trade. Francis Newton, a young Scot, sailed from Gravesend in Britain and arrived in Madeira on September 12th 1745 founding the company. He was joined by his younger brother Thomas from 1758 to 1763 and then by another Scot, Thomas Gordon of Balmaghie also in 1758. Thomas Murdoch joined the firm in 1791 that came to be called Newton, Gordon, Murcoch & Co. By 1850 the firm was said to be shipping "half the growth of the Island" and Newton's contacts in America through his brother Andrew (who left Scotland for Virginia) were proving to be highly successful and the company acquired an unequalled reputation as suppliers of fine Madeiras.

really deep on the nose with an uncommon combination of Mexican chocolate and broth concentrate. With air gains notes of dried papaya, anise seed and cardamom. Fairly dry and with searing acidity this possesses lots of dark, coffee liquor tones with a rich mid-palate and a long finish of roasted nuts, that turns a bit bitter and clumsy. 90pts
