"From the amazing 1945 vintage, Taylor Reputed from the start to be head and shoulders the best '45.A big strapping Wine, totally unready in the mid - 1960's, with magnificent depth and concentration in the late1970s. Fairly consistent notes through the 1980s including plummy colour, subl.ime bouquer, laden with fi·uit and alcohol. Lovely colour; restrained but harmonious bouquet;sweet, perfect flavour, nutty, intense, grear length, at Taylor's tercentenary tasting in 1991. (I recall much debate, the majority of tasters, includingJancis Robinson, Len Evans and Hugh Johnson, preferring the' 45, I personally thought the' 48 had the edge.) Then a memorable bottle at the 50th anniversary '1945 Vimage Dinner' hosted by Sir Christopher Mallaby,at the Embassy in Paris in December 1995. I noted 'powerful, assertive, years of life, impressive bur not a joy'(!). Most recently noring good colour, positive fruit, length, and the Taylor backbone. Certainly good. Certainly impressive, but the '48 is fuller. Last lasted March 1998 ***** " M Broadbent
