Winemaker's Notes:

Taylor's created Late Bottled Vintage; blended from wines of a single year, L.B.V. ages for up to six years in cask and is ready to drink when bottled. Its concentrated fruity flavour and firm, full-bodied palate make Taylor's L.B.V. the perfect Port to accompany blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort.

About Taylor Fladgate:

Taylor's is now into its fourth century: one of the very oldest of the Port companies. It is the last totally independent company of the original British Port houses-and is still family owned and managed. It is run today from Oporto by descendants of the Yeatman and Fladgate families, both of which have been partners in the firm since the 1830s. For more than 300 years Taylor's name has been synonymous with consistent excellence in Port.
