Mature gems from Madeira
8 Nov 2011 by Julia Harding MW
I hardly need to convince Purple pagers of the astounding longevity of madeira wines, described by Jancis in The miracle of madeira , and demonstrated many times over by tasting notes  back to 1795 and Tamlyn's 200 years of madeira , among many others. (Just click on the madeira tag at the end of the article to find more related articles.) Unlike many of the Madeiran treasures described in these articles, the dozen wines described below are still commercially available, albeit in small quantities, from Patrick Grubb MW, who organised a tasting of them in London recently. You can download the Patrick Grubb Selections list...
