2007 Niepoort Crusted

Post by Axel P » 05:10 Thu 10 Feb 2011

Dirk has just entered the market with a Crusted, which is extremely worth to look at.

Bottled in 2007 this port is on a fairly good single quinta vp-standard. Dark violett with very good purple reflections. Strong fruit with underlining tannins and acidity. Very seducive to drink now but worth laying down for a couple of years.

Do you know what price-range this is aimed at? There's not much of a gap between their LBV prices (which are quite high) and their VP prices (which, I think, are quite low).

No idea about the UK-price, but somewhere around 20% more than their LBV at least in GER. Worth every penny though.

I posted this TN from the New Douro Tasting in London recently.

Axel, do you mind if I add "2007" to the title of this thread so that it appears in the correct place in the TN Index?

I hope that equates to less than £20 a bottle, rather than less than £25...

Opps...didn’t see that, otherwise would have asked the same question of you!

I didn't ask the cost so I don't know. I would think £20 would be about right.

That may be true in the UK, but certainly not in the Netherlands! Their LBV's are around 16-17 euro, while new vintages are usually put in the market between 55 and 65 euro.
