Bottling date not stated on the label but from the dot matrix code appears to be 2020. Lovely sweet and ripe fruit with a gentle tannic core. Nicely balanced, smooth and enjoyable with the structure to keep in the cellar for a few years if needed but just as good to drink now. 86/100. Drunk 28-Jun-2020. Pop 'n' pour from a 1 litre bottle.

I have a couple of these so I’m pleased to hear it’s a nice drop. My understanding is that it’s filtered but there’s no information on the label to suggest either it is or not. I had planned to polish them off over the next year or two anyway!

I am sure they are filtered since Taylor’s invented the cheap-ish, filtered “no-decant” LBV. If TPF were ever going to change, I am sure it would either be put out under another label or marked in some other way so as to make it obvious.

I'm pretty sure that it's filtered. Still rather nice though.

I think that generally people who don't filter, say so. Hence Croft and Fonseca both say "unfiltered", Warre says "bottle matured" on their traditional LBV but not "filtered" on their LBV aimed at the airline and catering sectors.
