1982 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 12:32 Wed 26 Mar 2014

Bottled 1986, bottle matured. Deep rich red, looking to be mature. Lovely soft texture on the palate, with sweet Christmas mincemeat and a delicious caramel core. Firm acidity balances the sweetness of the fruit and the tannins are fully integrated. The warm sweetness continues through the aftertaste and the generous finish. This is very more-ish and a very enjoyable port. Great value for money @ £15 per bottle. 88/100. Decanted 1 hour. Drunk 25 Mar 2014.
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
