2011 Fonseca LBV

Post by AHB » 21:42 Mon 23 Oct 2017

Bottled unfiltered in 2016. Deep red in colour with a wide rim. A gentle nose of sour fruit. The slightly sour fruit appears amidst a big dose of tannins when the first sip is taken. This has mid-weight fruit and heavy-weight tannins that combine to give a nice chewiness to the finish. 83/100. 24-May-17.
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
