Calem Port

Founded in 1859 by António Alves Cálem, Porto Cálem was dedicated only to exporting wine to Brazil in exchange for exotic woods. Known by many as an incurable adventurer, when he founded the company António had already decided to cross the Atlantic to export to Brazil, rather than the route most shippers took to Britain or the rest of Europe. Having used their own fleet for these trans-Atlantic exports, their history is still remembered today through the Porto Cálem logo – a proud Caravel. Since then the firm has passed through four generations of the Cálem family, developing recognition for the quality of their wines in Portugal and around the world. In the process, the brand has accumulated numerous awards for the elegance and character of their ports.

Today, Cálem is owned by the Sogevinus group and has a wonderful back catalogue of aged Tawny ports. Their grapes come from the stunning Quinta do Arnozelo in the Douro Superior, an area with an excellent micro-climate and schistose soil perfect for the creation of beautiful ports.

Calem Port, 2019

Vintage Port
In Presentation Box

Cálem Classic Vintage Port, from the Douro Superior, reflects a myriad of terroirs that make up the classic profile of this House.
The result is of a blend from different plots of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Sousão. This Vintage by Cálem maintains the identity of the Port house: wines with a more robust profile, with firm structure and ripe fruit.

This Vintage presents an intense purple colour, the aromas are marked by blackberries that are complemented by notes of forest fruits, dark chocolate, pepper and slightly more resinous notes. Concentrated and intense, this is an irreverent and generous wine, with very firm tannins, suggesting great ageing potential.

90 - 92 Points - Wine Advocate

The Cálem 2015 Vintage Port Wine is noted as having aromas of “black fruit and hints of spice and cocoa” with a “robust and sweet” palate. It is a blend of 30% Touriga Naçional, 30% Touriga Franca, 30% Tinta Roriz and 10% Sousão.

Reviews
90-92 Points Wine Advocate - Mark Squires Aug 17
The 2015 Vintage Port is the only declared vintage in the Sogevinus stable this year. This is a blend of Touriga Nacional (30%), Touriga Franca (30%), Tinta Roriz (30%) and Sousão (10%), coming in at 94 grams per liter of residual sugar. A bit rounder and seemingly more concentrated than the Kopke, its main competitor in the Sogevinus stable this issue, this does a better job of filling the mouth and coating the palate.

The 2012 Vintage Port is a roughly equal blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz (30%), with Sousão (10%). It comes in at 88 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is a rather dry Port on paper and the only declared 2012 Vintage Port for those submitted by Sogevinus this issue. It was just a better vintage there, Sogevinus said.

Calem Port, 2011

Vintage Port Single Bottle in individual presentation box as illustrated

The 2011 Cálem Vintage Port Wine, according to Kim Marcus of Wine Spectator, reveals flavours of "black plums, blackberries and cherries" that "vibrate on the palate" with intense notes of "dark chocolate and spices." This Vintage Port suggests a "powerful control", the result of nobles and "structured tannins", extending the finish. According to Kim Marcus, this is a Vintage Port that follows the "traditional style of wines that need time," and recommends drinking it ideally after 2018.

Calem Port, 1963

Quinta da Foz
Wine Society Label

Bottled by the Wine Society. Mature rose red colour, 30% opaque. Little showing on the nose, although there is some faint sweet fruit that is reminiscent of sweet raspberries dusted with icing sugar. The dusty icing sugar and some candy floss creates the initial impact on the palate. Air on the palate improves the flavours, allowing the fruit to grow well until this port delivers a satisfying mouthful of flavour on the late palate. There is a delicious medium-weight aftertaste and a finish that shows a burnt orange edge throughout the long length. Reviewed & Tasted in 2018 by Alex Bridgeman, The Port Forum.
