Gould Campbell's 1977 Vintage Port was purchased in its original wooden cases and is drinking beautifully now, with a lifetime still ahead of it in the cellar.
The Gould Campbell Port house was established in 1797 by the Irishman Garret Gould who began trading as a Port shipper. Initially it was under the name Gould Brothers and Co, before later taking on the name Gould Campbell & Co, whilst building a reputation for its rich, full-bodied vintage Ports, which are today highly sought-after by those who really know their Port.
1977 was a classic Port Vintage, a year in which most of the major Port houses declared.

"Amazing color. Dark ruby center, with just a hint of garnet. This is very impressive on the nose. Crushed raspberry, coffee, licorice and chocolate. Complex. What a palate. Big, rich and powerful, yet balanced and pleasing. Full, medium-sweet and caressing. Silky. Drink it for the rest of your life. Why wait? Underrated around the world." Wine Spectator
