Burmester Port

burmester-portBurmester is a prestigious brand of wines, representing all the history and tradition of the Douro. In 1730, Henry Burmester and John Nash founded a cereal company in London, before moving to Vila Nova de Gaia in 1750 to bring Port to Britain and Europe. The company passed through generations until, in 1834, Johann Wilhelm Burmester – a direct descendant of Henry – landed in Oporto. Beginning as a simple clerk in a debt-ridden company, JWB continued first to become manager, then to acquire the entity with all rights.

Bringing his children into the business, the company was renamed JW Burmester & Co in 1880. He began to absorb other businesses such as a bottle company and two cargo ships, allowing the shipping to be completed in-house as Burmester continued to grow. Sadly, 5 years later JWB was taken by the sea in Foz do Porto, but his children continued without him. JW Burmester & Co persisted through the 20th Century, and in 1992 began their production of DOC Douro Wine, branching into dry wine and quickly being accepted by the market.

JW Burmester have developed a strong reputation throughout Europe and the US but are practically unknown in the UK market. They produce an outstanding range of Colheita Ports, ports from a single harvest that have been barrel-aged until bottling. They have developed amazing flavours of caramel, nuts and spices. Served slightly chilled, they are fabulous alone or with sweet desserts. We are proud to reintroduce this amazing brand back into the UK.

Burmester Port, 2013

Late Bottled Vintage Port

Tasting Note:
The aromas are delicate and varied, with plenty of tropical fruit, berries and grapes fully ripe. In its evolution are noticeable aromas of cocoa, chocolate and a slight toasted wood. The palate is dense and opaque.

Winemaking:
In similar fashion to the Vintage, Late Bottled Vintage is produced in the traditional manner, thus gaining a more rustic and tougher character. It is aged in the Vila Nova de Gaia cellars in enormous oak vats in order to preserve its deep colour and fresh fruit flavours, gaining a closed and fruity character. It is bottled between the fourth and fifth spring after harvest.

Burmester Port, 2011

Vintage Port - Single Bottle in Presentation Box

*** 93 points Wine Spectator ***
88-90 Points - Robert Parker

The 2011 Burmester Vintage Port is, according to Kim Marcus (Wine Spectator), an "intensely fruity" wine with great complexity and concentration, notes of "raspberries, black plums and wild cherries." This wine offers a "refined finish" with a touch of "dark chocolate, tea and brown sugar." It is a wine that, according to the critic, is ready to drink but has the ability to continue ageing during the next three decades.

Reviews: "The 2011 J W Burmester has a sweeter, comparatively floral bouquet with open, generous scents of ripe dates, black plum and raisin that need to show a little more restraint.

Burmester Port, 2011

Vintage Port 6x75cl Bottle Case

Since the beginning of the 20th century, all Vintages are bottled in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia during the second spring after the harvest. Produced according to the traditional method of foot treading in classic stone "lagares", a Vintage is only declared in years of outstanding and exceptional quality.

The association of Vintage Port with a mature blue cheese such as Stilton is one of the great classic food and wine combinations. The soft buttery texture, mellow character and piquancy of the cheese are perfectly matched by the powerfully majestic flavours of the Vintage Port. Other blue, buttery, mellow and slighty piquant cheeses to consider would be: Cashel Blue, Roquefort, Gorgonzola and Saint Agur Blue.
