NV Fonseca Crusted 2007

Post by AHB » 21:36 Mon 23 Oct 2017

Brick red colour, 90% opaque. An odd and offputting nose but if you get past this the entry is not much better being bland, soft and flabby. Hollow mid-palate but some life appears on the late palate. This bottle is rather dried out although a little sweet fruit and ripe tannin appears on the finish. Very much worse than the bottle tried the previous year. 74/100. 24-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
