Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

97 WS / 96 WA / 97 RP / 18 JR

A big wine with superb balance, a shining example of this exuberantly fruity vintage. Deep ruby, with violets and coffee on the nose, full-bodied, with dried cherry flavors and plenty of tannin, balanced and long on the finish. - James Suckling, Wine Spectator

A much more youthful colour compared to the -60, the nose is very well defined, feminine, almost floral with notes of wild strawberry, smoke, tobacco, Clementine and leather. Yet it does not quite have the breeding I was expecting, something more transparent when contrasting against the -45 or the -48. The palate is silky and harmonious with filigree tannins, notes of strawberry, cherry and liquorices leading to a more structured fig-tinge finish. The palate is more compelling than the nose and it has great length. I would actually give this more time in bottle, something tells me it would like to reach half-a-century! Tasted November 2007. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades. Their tawnys are also among the very best, though somewhat expensive. The 1963 is quite fabulous yet still seemingly capable of developing for another decade or more. - Robert Parker

Fully mature but still vigorous and youthful 1963 Taylor are as good as it gets for vintage port. - Robert Parker, Headonist’s Gazette

A rare treat to sip a truly mature vintage port. The spirit was just starting to make its presence felt. This is fully mature and possibly, in the case of this bottle, even starting its gentle decline. Extremely sweet and spicy, this reminded me of those biscuits they call gypsy creams. Caressing, round texture. - Jancis Robinson
