1967 Quinta do Noval

Post by DRT » 20:58 Tue 01 Dec 2009

From the 1966 v 1967 tasting on 13 Nov 09

D+18 days (60ml kept in the fridge)
Much darker and more red than the Nacional from the same vintage. The nose is quite closed. Thick and chewy entry. Anicede and spices with lots of black fruits. The finish is long and quite dry and tannic and has left my teeth squeaking. Very, very nice port.

I like this a lot better than the Nacional 67 anyways.

I've only had this once, and it almost never comes up for sale. A smoking good Port thats for sure

Ex-cellars. Slightly deeper red than the 1966 tasted alongside this wine. Very dusty on the nose, more closed than the 1966 but with a lovely white cherry scent. A thick texture, very dusty on the tongue. 92/100. Drunk 13 Nov 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

N67: Nosing of pepper, and full red fruit. Richer in the more fruit sense than the N66, soft and lovely. Later: heat still very strong.
