Rare Wine Company "Historic Series - Boston" Bual Madeira

SKU #1061379 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Slightly richer than the Charleston Sercial, the Boston Bual boasts knockout aromas of toasted nut oil, orange peel and hints of dark honey or maple syrup. Despite the extra weight and sweetness, it's not cloying at all the finish is mouthwatering and long. *Editors' Choice* (JC) Inner quote mark (11/2006)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Nutty aromas and flavors are filled with buttery notes in this plush and sweet style. Dried apricot and mango details add to the richness. Finishes with seductive smoke, dried beef and cocoa powder components. (KM) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Boston Bual bottling from the Rare Wine Company is really a very pretty wine that offers up excellent value, as it wafts from the glass in a blend or orange zest, coffee, a lovely touch of toasted nuts and a gentle topnote of caramel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and only moderately sweet, with a lovely core, bright, tangy acids and very fine length and grip that closes with a fine note of spiciness. This has about 3% residual sugar, and with its lively acidity, the wine comes off as more off-dry than sweet in style. A fine bottle. 92+ Inner quote mark (1/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Light, bright amber. Deep aromas of cherry pit, candied orange, toffee and molasses, lifted by a note of dried rose. Chewy in texture, with dry-edged nut and burnt orange flavors, a touch of molasses sugar and good back-end grip. Quite sweet but the wine's acidity adds focus, nerve and finishing bite. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

K&L Notes

These are the most affordable, representative examples of classic Madeira available. A collaboration between the importer and Barbeito's Ricardo Diogo Vasconcelos Freitas, the idea behind these bottlings is to capture some of the magic of vintage Madeira: the beautiful aromas, intensity of flavor and, most importantly, the acidity. Given the fact that 1.5-3 ounces is a sufficient pour and that once opened, these simply will not go bad, these are also among the best deals we have in the store for those looking for a truly unique addition to the cellar (as well as to their drinking rotation)!
