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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
