10 of the oldest wines held in the UK Government wine cellar

1. 1931 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port, Douro

Average selling price: £5,120

“Decant very late. Reviewed at lunch in 1988 and found to be super. No longer to be considered for sale. Review again in 1991.” (1988)

“Again found to be superb, impeccable. Should last another 20-50 years, possibly even longer. A real ‘national treasure’.” (1991)

“Sublime – best this century.” (1995)

“Problems with leaking corks highlighted in 2004. Recorking options examined. Still spectacular.” (2004)
