1966 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:33 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Soft red in colour, showing perfect maturity. Softly hot on the nose with sweet plum jam although more subdued than would be expected. Lovely and silky in the mouth. Lots of fruit in the palate and plenty of subtleties. Surprisingly tannic and quite big. Huge aftertaste. A big and very fine wine. 93/100. Drunk 26 June 2009.
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
