2007 Niepoort LBV

Post by AHB » 09:06 Tue 10 May 2011

Lodge sample, to be bottled in 2011. Soft red edge. Baby vintage port nose, with purple grapes and blueberry everywhere. Fruit forward entry, with a soft tannin core; showing pleasant violets and lots of fruit which grows in volume. Good black cherry finish with tickling tannins. A soft and fruity style that is extremely easy to drink. Not rated.
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
