1977 Niepoort Vintage Port

Post by Axel P » 14:28 Mon 30 Nov 2009

Tasted within the Niepoort Range on Nov 27th with Dirk Niepoort:

Still slightly closed. We compared the 77 together with the 78:

Strong nose with fruit and malt-notes. Much more under the skin - still somehow closed, though decanted for 6+ hrs. Palate intense with strong honey notes, malt and some background fruit.
Aftertaste with a good weight.

This Port is still closed, but will be very nice in 10 years from now

taste: closed
taste: harmonic body at the beginning to get drinkable

Do not touch this port in the next 10 years.
Blue Stilton and Port - what else!
