2011 Niepoort LBV

Post by AHB » 21:38 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Bottled 2015. Deep red, bordering on scarlet at the rim. Opaque centre. Fresh blackcurrant nose of an exuberant and youthful port. A big mouthful of fruit, slightly perfumed by hints of aniseed and big, powerful tannins. A lovely fruity aftertaste and finish that is concentrated and persistent. A great LBV capable of aging and improving for 30 years. 89/100. 06-May-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
