1960 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:53 Mon 13 May 2013

Red core, firm rim; 50% opaque. Restrained with little on the nose. Just some vague rhubarb. Sweet fruit, balanced but with a slight lack of acidity. Good components but less depth than the 1963 shown alongside. Pleasant aftertaste. A little flabby and lacking in focus. 88/100. Drunk 23 April 2013 with a 6 hour decant.
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
