2009 Krohn LBV

Post by AHB » 22:02 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled unfiltered in 2013; 21,880 bottles produced. Magenta in colour, opaque. Lovely nose, mixing generous fruit and floral elements. Powerful, attractive and youthful. Sweet and fruity on the palate with a nice texture. Big, ripe tannins on the mid-palate supporting really nice fruit. A lovely long finish. An attractive, easy to drink LBV that will happily cellar for 5 years. 87/100. 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
