1960 Fonseca vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:59 Fri 08 Oct 2010

Rich red in colour; 60% opaque. Fresh and grassy on the nose, with lots of cranberries. Rich and sweet impact with the acidity partly hidden behind the rich fruit; impressive depth of flavours. There is a touch of heat on swallowing, but this precedes a long finish, full of chocolate and sweet aniseed. Really tasty port. 91/100. Drunk 24 September 2010.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994

F60: bad lighting prevented a note of appearance. Hot, medium wight, with 15 minutes becoming very sweet, uncomplicated, but extremely long.

My ranking was ‟F60 > G63 > G77 > T63”.
