1977 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 16:58 Sat 11 May 2013

Reddish-brown in colour, 20% opaque. Hollow nose but sweet fruit on the palate, with good balance and ripe tannins. Nice fruit development on the palate and licorice root all over the finish. Delicious, but not as good as the 1970 shown alongside. 91/100. Tasted at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
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
