Portugal – Douro – red port – LBV - Taylor's
|Bottle size:||Bottle (0.75L)|
|Number of bottles:||6-10|
Although frequently copied by other Port houses, the Taylor's Late Bottled Vintage is the best in its category. The wine is a blend of several of the best lots belonging to Taylor's and those of the top producers in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The customary touriga francesa, tinta roriz and touriga nacional are intensively soaked for fermentation right after being manually picked. Fermentation is stopped by adding the wine alcohol, as is customary, after which the four to six years of ageing in containers can commence.
The colour of he LBV is a lively deep red. It has the powerful scent of spicy fruit with a refined spiciness, hints of roasting, figs, prunes, blackberry and cacao. This vintage is full to the taste with a little sweetness but with a tight start followed by a well-concentrated fruitiness.
Its finish is very warm and full, for very long, and again its spiciness, pleasant liquorice and hints of roasting can be found. That is why this is a perfect glass for everyone to enjoy: great with chocolate, almonds, walnuts and beautiful rich cheeses. Late Bottled Vintage is ready to drink …
