2008 Fonseca LBV

Post by AHB » 21:51 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled 2013. Soft sweet nose, very open. Mid-weight entry, initially of sweet and modest fruit but then the tannic support comes through. Lovely sweet fruit on the finish. Attractive but slightly simple. 84/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
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
