2011 Burmester

Post by AHB » 08:23 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Nose takes a while to show, but after a day or two is full of sharp, fresh-crushed blackcurrants. Balanced on entry, bringing plenty of aromatic fruit and a powerful acidity. A lovely purity to the fruit, which hides the modest tannins. The aftertaste is dominated by the acidity and it is the generous levels of acidity that should provide the support to this port as it ages. 94-96. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the 2011 extended tasting.
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
