2007 Burmester LBV

Post by WineLoverPT » 12:56 Tue 10 Jun 2014

(I see no bottling date on this bottle)

D: At decanting time this was hot hot hot. Thick, almost jellylike in the mouth - hugely opaque - blackberries, with a medium finish.
D + 24 hours: Blackberries, blackcurrants, and other black- prefixed fruit. Deep, thick - nice heat in the mouth, but still a little hot at the finish.
D + 48 hours: The optimal time, I think - nicely warm now, huge fruit flavours, thick but without cloy - long, long finish.

I still don't really feel qualified to give points for port, but I'm thinking 90 or thereabouts.
I like it a lot, so I've bought another couple of bottles of this from the local supermarket at a penny shy of 18 euros.

Please don't feel that you need to give a score if you're not comfortable doing so. You've told us the most important thing - you enjoyed this enough to go and buy two more bottles for EUR18 per bottle.
