NV Borges Boal 10YO

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Borges 10YO Boal. Deep brown honey colour. Fresh sweet soft tropical fruit on the nose. As anticipated, the balance on the palate is better than on the 5YO with the acidity and burnt honey playing together nicely. There is plenty of fragrant and bitter citrus on the big aftertaste and even a little grip on the finish. A big step up from the 5YO. 88/100. Tasted 07-May-2024.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
