2011 is being hailed as incredible year for Vintage Ports. Don't miss this opportunity to buy at En-Primeur Prices and save an incredible 35%!
All the critics are raving about the quality of the 2011 vintage in Oporto. James Suckling says "The newest vintage Port on the market, 2011, is the best since the legendary 1994, and perhaps even better. The top young Ports from this vintage show a purity of fruit and superb structure of tannins and acidity. It's this sensational balance that makes them extraordinary."
Jancis Robinson says "truly outstanding" - the accolades flow from everyone who has tasted the wines.
We are delighted to present the highly rated 2011 Calem Vintage Port En-Primeur. What does this mean?
En-Primeur is usually used for Bordeaux where interested buyers can purchase wines in advance whilst they are still in barrel at a discounted price. Often the wait for delivery is well over twelve months, sometimes as much as two years.
In the case of these Ports the wines will be available for shipping later this year, so the wait is quite short. However, the savings are quite incredible.
The En Primeur Prices are 25% less than the regular prices ex cellars. So when you combine this discount with our regular 15% Pre Arrival discount the savings are around 35%!

Founded in 1859, by António Alves Cálem, Porto Cálem was originally dedicated only to wine exports to Brazil in exchange of exotic woods and by means of its own fleet. In fact, those activities are still remembered today through Porto Cálem brand logotype where a caravel recalls this proud history.
James Suckling: Aromas of blueberries, minerals and slate. Flowers too. Full body, medium sweet with intense and powerful tannins. Wonderful depth and beauty to this. Chewy and polished. Lasts for minutes. Best ever from here. Try after 2022. 93 Points
Wine Advocate: The Calem 2011 Vintage Port seems more reserved on the nose, with broody blackberry, fig and ashen aromas that are well-defined, but more masculine than I expected. The aromatics are a little aloof, but I actually enjoy that. The palate is silky smooth and sensual, with slightly lower acidity than its peers, but it is very focused and harmonious. Velvety smooth with copious dates and cassis towards the finish, the 2011 Calem is a beautiful Vintage Port that should age with style. I would be extremely happy with bottles berthed in my cellar. 93-95 Points
