1991 Churchill's vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:33 Mon 02 May 2011

Mid red colour, some early maturity on the rim. Nosing of slightly rotten fruit and quite spirity. Smooth in the mouth, gently tannic and giving the impression of over-ripe fruit. More tannic than I remember from previous bottles. Chewy aftertaste, dark chocolate finish of good length. Better than I recall the bottles showing at TCP. 86/100.
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
