The Story

Taylor’s Port is the last of the original English founding port companies to remain family owned. It has never been bought, sold or taken over. The company is run by descendants of the founders. This ensures its outlook and philosophy remains focused on the production of top quality ports.
Taylor’s were also the first to invest heavily in property in the Upper Douro. The recent acquisition of Quinta do Junco illustrates the continued commitment of the firm to producing premium quality wines. Their Estates at Vargellas, Terra Feita and Junco, have been carefully selected and all have the prize Casa do Douro “A” classification. The main grape varieties used are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão and Tinta Amarela.
Each Estate has a carefully planned programme of new planting to maintain the standards of the estate wines - used for the famous Taylor’s Vintage Ports, single Quinta wines, and the backbone of Taylor’s Late Bottled Vintage Port.

Taylor’s Vintage Port is made from grapes grown on the firms two properties Quinta de Vargellas and Quinta de Terra Feita. The stature of its Port is acknowledged by experts everywhere - and by the international wine auctions which regularly price Taylor’s Vintage Port ten to fifteen per cent above its rivals.

Written Notes

A classic vintage, but some companies, having declared the 1934, did not declare it.
‘Dark amber. Powerful cocoa aromas, harmonious; a complex entry marked by cocoa notes and well integrated alcohol. A long, persistant finish. Superb.’

The 1935 Taylor's Vintage Port vies with the 1900 and the 1948 as the greatest Taylor's of the century. It has a deep amber core with tawny rim. The nose is flattering, more feminine and cohesive than more venerable Taylor's Ports with touches of orange zest, liquorice, spice box, rose petals and nougat. It is very complex and compelling, all exquisitely defined. The palate is just sensational: extremely concentrated, not as tannic as the 1927 but bewitching and harmonious with a silky texture. There are notes of honey, apricot, leather, tobacco and cooked meats. After two hours it develops a medicinal element. Incredibly well focused with a viscous finish with candied orange peel, lemongrass and cigar box, this multi-dimensional Vintage Port is almost too good to drink! Perfect. Tasted in the Factory House in Porto for "Taylor's - The Story of a Classic Port House" book.
