2011 Burmester

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Drunk at dinner at O Gaveto with AHB and Tony Carter.

Burmester 2011, pop and pour. A touch of passion fruit on the nose. Lovely balance on the palate, generous fruit still overwhelming the tannins. Ripe without being sweet, perfect raspberry. Fruit driven finish. Lovely; drinkable today but with plenty of life in the cellar. 89/100. Tasted 09-Feb-22.
Pop 'n' pour.
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.
