1982 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 14:46 Mon 09 Sep 2013

Traditional bottle matured LBV, bottled in 1986. Cork branded "Warres vintage 1982 bottled 1986". Decanted very cleanly off a modest amount of sediment. Ex-cellars in 2012.

Rich brick red colour, 50% opaque. Sweet nose, dusty and full of rose-hips. Sweet, ripe fruit concentrates on the palate, bringing a richness across the palate that has good depth and decent complexity. The richness and dustiness of the fruit shows on the aftertaste and finish. Rich and sweet, slightly lacking in complexity but with a good richness and palate presence. 89/100. Drunk 07-Sep-13 with a 1 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
