1970 Fonseca Vintage Port Reviews

96 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Some people may enjoy this wine's rather fat, rich, and powerful fruit now, but I still find it too young for drinking. Deeply colored, with smoky mint, tar, and fruit aromas, full-bodied, with concentrated fruit flavors and plenty of tannins.”

95 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Tasted at the Vintners Company’s 650th anniversary celebration at Vintners Hall, the Fonseca 1970 was the finest bottle I have encountered. The bouquet opens beautifully with heady scents of clove, ginger, small red cherries, bergamot, and allspice, displaying exquisite definition and harmony. The palate follows suit with lovely balance and poise in the mouth, notes of kirsch, shaved ginger, and walnut building to an opulent, viscous finish that lacquers the mouth. Yet this bottle shows more control than the bottle tasted four years ago. The 1970 Fonseca is in a very nice place at the moment. You should join it.”

Bonus Reviews

United Kingdom

17.5/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine

“Mid brick-tawny. A meaty hint, with dark chocolate, fig, and praline. Rich but with an underlying elegance and sophistication. Great length and lots of depth.”
