1871 Quinta do Loureiro colheita

Post by AHB » 22:45 Tue 17 Jul 2012

A second bottle opened the day after the first.

Deep brown, 20% opaque. Mild nose, clearly colheita and with attractive orange. Thick and powerful on the palate, with lots of coffee, concentrated flavours and a good balance. Lingering coffee on the aftertaste. Showing well. 89/100. 14-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
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
