2012 Duorum LBV

Post by AHB » 22:46 Wed 03 Jan 2018

Duorum's first vintage (both VP and LBV) was 2007. This was bottled in 2017. Deep red colour with a medium rim. A wonderful and complex nose with sweet black fruit competing for attention with freshly baked biscuits. Smooth and balanced entry with baked fruit flavours adding immediate complexity; warm and delicious. Modest aftertaste and a modest finish that is sweet and figgy, backed by soft tannins. Will happily keep 5-10 years - good comfort port. 87/100. 06-Nov-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
