Graham’s Ne Oublie 130 Year Old Port. 100-pts
One of the most uniqe and rarest presentations we’ve found! This extraordinary wine was part of three barrels dating back to the arrival of  Andrew James Symington, the founder of Symington Family Estates, in Portugal in 1882. Now 135 years later, Paul Symington and his family have bottled one of the three original barrels. The family named this treasured vintage “Ne Oublie” or  “Do Not Forget.” Each bottle comes in an individually numbered, hand-made crystal decanter designed by Portugal’s leading glass manufacturer Atlantis. The decanter is encased in a bespoke presentation box, handcrafted with the finest leathers by the quintessentially British brand, Smythson of Bond Street, one of the world’s oldest luxury leather goods companies. There is a leaflet included in the box with a detailed presentation of the wine signed by the family members. Less than 50 bottles have been imported in the U.S.
Price: $7,699. Free ground shipping with this item.
