MOSCATEL DE SETÚBAL SUPERIOR 1955
D.O.C. MOSCATEL DE SETÚBAL
The Moscatel de Setúbal Superior 1955, of extraordinary elegance, is surely one of the best vintages of the twentieth century. The 1955 vintage is now only available in a few dozen remaining bottles.
Domingos Soares Franco usually claims that there is little to mention about this harvest, except that it represents almost perfection! He often describes it as a 1000-piece puzzle, in which 999 pieces fit together perfectly, leaving only one 1 that almost fits perfectly. The prestigious wine critic Mark Squires in The Wine Advocate Magazine by Robert Parker awarded this wine with 99 points in 2015.
