From the excellent 1963 vintage, this stunning vintage Port scores 95/100 Parker points and "needs the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades.....The 1963 is quite fabulous yet still seemingly capable of developing for another decade or more." Drink now - 2019.

An monumental Vintage of legendary proportions. One of the 20th Century's finest. A Vintage Port against which all others are judged. Declared by all the major Port Houses. Vintage Ports with their essential three components of fruit, tannin and elegance prodcued. Ronald Symington of the Symington Port Group, "Wonderful weather for the last three weeks, which was just what was required after the rain. The last weeks of the most perfect weather cleared up any podre (rot) that was threatening. Mostos (musts) look very nice indeed and seem to have plenty of colour even if perhaps lacking a little in guts. Graduations on the whole are very good and the grapes, especially in the early part of the vintage, produced a great deal of wine. Nights have been cool and temperatures have been very satisfactory. We have every hope that some very good wines will have been made."
Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman was founded in 1692 in Vila Nova de Gaia by Job Bearsley, becoming Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman when Joseph Taylor, John Alexander Fladgate and Morgan Yeatman formed a partnership in 1838. Taylor Fladgate owns the brands of Fonseca, Fonseca-Guimaraens, Taylors, and Croft which it bought in 2001 and whose first vintage was the 2003 vintage. Taylor Fladgate invented the style of late-bottled vintage port in the 1960's and continues to use traditional methods (including foot treading in stone lagares) to make an outstanding range of vintage ports.
