2000 Niepoort LBV

Post by AW77 » 15:01 Sun 25 Jan 2015

Bottled unfiltered in 2005.
D+0h: medium amount of deposit in the tea filter and in the bottle (though some large chunks here), smells very pleasantly and intensively of currant D+5,5h: purple red, on the rim ruby red, smells of raspberry, eucalyptus and of minerality, medium body, not that sweet, more "half-dry", in the mouth currant and some liquorice, very smooth, in the aftertaste currant, liquorice and a little bit of acidity, good length (30 sec), in the end the liquorice lingers on the tongue D+6h: the body gets fuller and the liquorice taste is more pronounced now, a very tasty and very good LBV, I look forward to the other two bottles that I have (which I plan to drink in January 2016 and January 2017).

You told me this before, but where did you get hold of these? And are they still selling them? And at what price?

In March last year I did an internet search for older Niepoort LBVs. I found this one at "Irmgard's Wein-Capinet". I took their last three bottles for 21 Euro each all in.
