80-year old wine?

I thinking of giving this
as an 80th birthday present. But can it really be OK? I realise that in spite of being called 'vin doux naturel' it is fortified - but eighty years?

I know there are wines kept in a solera type of system where a sequence of barrels is gradually topped up, each from the next newest and so on, so that an ancient vintage may end up with only a small proportion from the named, original year. But this doesn't seem to be like that.
