Quinta do Noval - Vertical tasting in Germany, 17 Feb 2018

Post by Axel P »

17. Feb in Leverkusen, Germany

Pretty much everything from 1955 and younger, including some NNs and hopefully Noval's enologist Carlos Agrellos.

PM me if you are interested.

Nice line-up!
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

That's a bold move for such a young wine.

But you have to drink it now and then to figure that this is bold.

For me the 11 NN could be the worthy successor of the 63 and it will be fantastic to see this maturing over the next decades.

Best

Send me a list of names for the placemats.

Draft of which at www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20180217_Noval_Leverkusen.pdf, doubtless with many errors (including the fact that the twenty-one bottles will be drunk by the only attendee).
