NV Calem 20YO Tawny (b. 2021)

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

NV Calem 20YO tawny, bottled 2021. Polished chestnut brown green in colour, 50% opaque. Lovely polished nose, full of roasted chestnuts and maple syrup. Fabulous entry, big and intense dominated by the older wines in the blend. Nuts and dates merged with balsamic and molasses give layer after layer of flavour. A huge aftertaste and big, long finish. A really impressive blend as good as many 40 year old tawnies. 92/100. Tasted 31-Mar-22.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
