Borges H.M.

Madeira 1720 Pather Borges Family Reserve

HM Borges, Pather 1720

Provenance: Christies Inc. New York , 12/9/2016

"...from the private cellars of the Borges family (not the company, this is from the family's own private reserves). Apart from a few bottles of 1715 Terrantez, this is the oldest Madeira in existence. Probably a Moscatel, but might be a Bual. Originally purchased by the grandfather of the Borges family (hence "Pather"). His wish was that it eventually forced the family to do so. Kept in demijohns for most of its life."
