Ramos Pinto Porto 20 Year Old Tawny Quinta Do Bom Retiro 1993

External Review by WineChateau.com:

A tawny colour with a yellow halo that signifies an advanced stage of maturity. This is thegenuine colour of a 20 year-old cask-aged wine. It has a warm red colour with a slightorange tone at the bottom of the glass.A lively aroma with a velvety texture. Fruit aromas: grapefruit, apricot, almond, hazelnut andcocoa bean. Wood aromas: vanilla, old Port wine casks and phenol. Roasted aromas:cinnamon, caramel, coffee. Ethereal aromas: stearin and iodine.Smooth and dry in the mouth, complemented by a rich and generous persistence of flavour.A fine and delicious attack. The elegance of the first contact with the palate is maintainedthrough a complex sequence of ripe and dried fruits and nuts in a fresh and liquorice-likeharmony.

When walking in the chateau grounds it is obvious that its history goes further back than the 1855 classification. Citran is actually one of the Medoc's oldest seigneuries. Numerous Marquis de Donnissan, related to the family of France, reigned here for 600 years and only abandoned their chateau in the middle of the 18th century. Since then the chateau has gone through different phases. The various owners and the general financial crisis meant that the surface of the vineyards varied between 90 hectares to less than 4 hectares. The wine's quality reflected these fluctuations. Things got better in 1945 when the Miailhe brothers bought the property. Ten years ago a serious boost in the research for quality was set in motion. An accumulation of hard work and the huge investments initiated by the precedent Japanese owners brought Citran back towards the Haut Medoc elite. This transition was carried through under the leadership of the new and exacting owners. The Merlaut-Villars family is well known in the Medoc. They are true connoisseurs of wine and land. A symbol of this old cru Bourgeois wine's new-found youth is the arrival of young Céline Villars who will from now on represent the chateau. Read less

This Port shows plenty of caramel, egg yolk and slightly salty character. Full-bodied, with a big impact on the palate of toffee, candied fruits and honey. Very long finish. Excellent. Ramos-Pinto is a master of old tawnies. Drink now.
