2011 Warre LBV (filtered)

Post by AHB » 14:57 Thu 05 Jan 2017

Filtered, bottling date not given. Offered at the BA Lounge in Terminal 5 at Heathrow.

Dark red, the colour of black cherry juice; opaque. Pleasant on the nose but rather thin and harsh on the palate with little fruit; dried out and unbalanced with some residual sugar but otherwise full of tannin and acidity. Very disappointing, but possibly a bottle which had been open far too long since this was so different to the previous glass tried two months ago. 84/100. Drunk 28-Nov-16. Decanting time N/K.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
