NV Burmester 40YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 11:41 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Mid orange-brown, 40% opaque. A great nose of honey and VA. The palate comes with a lovely elegance, big and powerful but without the cloying depth or sweetness of the Kopke 30 year old tawny. Fresh acidity provides focus and balance yet the range of flavours is deep and complex. This has a wonderful elegance and an infinite finish that covers the entire mouth, lips, cheeks and tongue. Wow! 95/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
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
