2011 Andresen LBV

Post by AHB » 22:02 Sun 22 Oct 2017

Tasted at the Sunday Times Wine show.

Bottled unfiltered in July 2015. Deep red and opaque. Showing little on the nose, but served fairly cold. A lovely texture, quite thick, matched by silky fruit and a quality tannin load that is ripe and toasty giving good balance and structure. Delicious sweet cherry and black licorice finish with a great length. This is a very fine uinfiltered LBV, offered by the Sunday Wine Club / Laithwaites for £15.50 per bottle. 89/100. Drunk 19-May-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
