Churchill Graham Lda
Johnny Graham left Cockburn’s as a director in 1980 to set up the first independent Port house in seventy years in Oporto. The old Graham’s ‘family’ business and its name had been sold to the Symingtons in 1970 so he chose instead to adopt his wife’s maiden name of Churchill. With the purchase of Quinta da Gricha and Quinta do Rio, both renowned Grade A vineyards in the premium Cima Corgo region of the Douro, Churchill’s is now in control from grape to bottle. As well as producing very fine, well-structured Ports, Johnny has been at the forefront of Douro Red wine production.
Looking very promising too, to soon to say for sure but signs are there!
A small yield has given concentrated musts, Single Quintas look likely.
A split declaration with only some houses declaring.
Outstanding. Concentration, great length and a rare purity are the key
components in early tastings. Definitely one that will last.
Inky at the moment, the top wines have gone into their shells. Intense
and rich throughout.
Still fairly impenetrable, powerful and structured, made for keeping
and best left at present.
A wonderfully ripe and rich vintage, approachable now but certainly
Promising much, widely declared and looking good for the mid to long
A long-term keeper that is currently quite closed. The Symington Ports
were not declared.
Concentrated and intense, another vintage for keeping if you can, although
lesser houses are drinking well now.
Big, powerful wines that will keep longer than originally thought.
Somewhat underrated at the time of release, the vintage produced mid-weight,
very pure flavoured Ports, which are ready now, and a good buy.
While undoubtedly great, some wines have matured faster than predicted.
Very fine, but possibly ones that you want to drink now rather than later.
Limited declaration, and for drinking now. Light, but well-made.
Well-structured wines that have now come round well. Only a little behind
the 1963s, and drinking well, the best are capable of going further.
Coming to the fore now, as the wines have developed wonderfully well.
Excellent flavour, beautiful current drinking.
A classic vintage, still drinking well thanks to its balance and structure.
