Cossart Gordon 5 Year Old Bual Madeira

SKU #1181093 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Editors' Choice* Don’t let the medium you—that’s how this is supposed to look. Malmsey is the sweetest of the Madeiras, and this one is intensely sweet, yet also lemony-tart at the same time, with flavors of black walnuts, molasses and coffee.  (11/2006)

Wine Spectator

 Smooth and lush, with loads of glazed apricot, maple, vanilla and cream flavors. Fresh, focused finish.  (11/2006)

K&L Notes

Cossart Gordon, founded in 1759, is a Bual specialist, only bottling Madeiras from this noble grape variety known for producing slightly spicy and medium sweet styles of Madeira. This example shows lovely candied fruits and a rich buttery toffee quality, with refreshing acidity and even some saline notes as well. Great value. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
