Deep rich brick red colour, ripe vigorous and fruity nose. A smooth and velvety mouthful of fresh red fruits, with a solid tannic structure and a long harmonious finish. Having been spared the filtration process this wine has more depth of colour, richness of fruit and intensity of bouquet than standard LBVs. Ideally to be served as an accompaniment to cheese, dessert, or on its own at the end of a meal. This wine is unfilterd and will continue to develop in the bottle. As a result it may throw a light deposit and need decanting.
Average value port at this price. Had higher expectations for a late bottles vintage.
