2007 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port Reviews



96 Pointz Wine Spectator


“This is a giant of a wine lurking behind fresh flowers and ripe fruit. Starts off in a friendly way, then takes hold of the palate, with intense blueberry and blackberry fruit and chewy yet fine tannins. Mouth puckering, but impressively complex and long. Really kicks in on the finish. The best Taylor since 1994.”


95 Pointz Wine & Spirits


“At its best, this wine is a vibrant, huge young Porto knocking out all the others with its delicious power-a Master of the Universe wine. It's a blast of schist, cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, and black licorice, all held in a supple grip that slides down the throat just as slowly as the wine's color slides down the side of the glass. At this stage, the score shows some restraint, the wine having gone into a funk after a day of air and becoming reduced and difficult, only to rebound the following day. Still, this demonstrates the potential to be one of the greatest Port wines David Guimaraens has made, coming from a balanced year with beauty rather than aggression in the tannin. It will be fascinating to compare this to the 2003 as the wines age over the next 50 years.”

Cellar Selection


“Enticing violet and black currant aromas are followed by ripe plum and spice flavors. Maybe this isn’t the most powerful Taylor Fladgate vintage ever, but it is balanced, opulent, beautifully made, the tannins fine, layered, with exquisite final acidity.”


94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The Taylor’s 2007 is in a rather odd phase at the moment, its sweet, marzipan-tinged bouquet tending to dominate the ripe black fruit. The palate is much more controlled, with very fine tannins, supremely well-judged acidity, and a very elegant, composed finish that has more purity and poise than the Fonseca. I would give bottles another decade to allow the aromatics to calm down.”


94 Pointz Stephen Tanzer’s

International Wine Cellar


“Bright, deep ruby. Superripe but youthfully clenched aromas of kirsch, blueberry, black licorice, smoke, and minerals. Densely packed, suave, and thick; has the texture of liquid velvet but urgent minerality gives it outstanding energy and a light touch. Best today on the slow-building, firmly tannic, spicy, palate-staining finish, which shows more grip and thrust than the Vargellas. This gained in complexity and definition for upwards of 72 hours in the recorked bottle. The Vargellas is an outstanding site expression while this is a great blend-and likely to enjoy a slower evolution in bottle. As usual, this should be among the longest-lived wines of the vintage.”

18/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Subtle dark ruby with massive layers of different flavours. Good tannins and sufficient freshness. Massive thick fruit and tannins; really very grown-up, sophisticated, and proper. Hint of juniper. Very complete.”
