Vintage of 1994:
A «monumental» Vintage, even more intense than that of 1992, with a concentration of tannins and fruit. As James Suckling wrote, in the American magazine Wine Spectator, which, in 1997, attributed the maximum classification (100 points) to Taylor and Fonseca's Vintage, and the first place among the hundred best wines of the year, «Great Vintage Ports like this year happen few times in a lifetime». General declaration. Excellent weather, harvest in ideal conditions, with perfect grapes.
Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman
Among the first of the early traders of Port was Job Bearsley, who by 1692 was a Port shipper and partner in the firm which we know today as Taylor's. Already in the 1670’es, born in Yorkshire, he was worked in the north of Portugal. He shipped, corn, fruit and wine (from Monaco) to England and wool and dried cod from England back to Portugal.
Situated high in the mountain reaches of the Upper Douro; Quinta de Vargellas is the crown jewel of Taylor's. Acquired in 1893, at the time when phylloxera was most destructive in the area the harvest at the Quinta was a beggarly six pipes. Nowadays the company is managed by descendants of two old Port wine families, the Yeatman’s and the Fladgate’s.
