Broadbent 10 Year Old Boal Madeira
|Availability:||In stock (3)|
Aged in oak casks for at least 10 years. A superb, full-bodied, wonderfully rich Madeira with a sweet, rich chocolaty flavor and a concentrated bouquet. Best enjoyed with desserts, or on its own after a meal.
90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The NV Malmsey 10 Year Old wafts from the glass with a rich, figgy bouquet of dried dates, demerara sugar, pecans and sultanas. On the palate, it's full-bodied, sweet and fleshy, with an ample, voluptuous profile and a generous core of somewhat grapey fruit, concluding with a creditably intense, expansive finish. This is a lusty, pleasure-bent Malmsey.
90 Wine Enthusiast - The Madeira regulations say that 10-years old is the age of the youngest part of the blend. So this richly sweet Malmsey contains many older wines. These are shown in the old gold color, the proper citrus acidity and the dryness that goes with wood aging. At the end, though, the liquid honey flavors are dominant.
