The Fonseca port house was founded in the early 1800s. This vintage port is incredibly approachable. The fruit is dark, ripe and full of mullberries. The tannins are surprising accessible today.

Die Portweine Vintage zeichnen sich durch die unverwechselbaren Aromen von sonnenbeschienenem Schiefer aus dem Douro-Tal aus. Kauft man sie als Primeurwein, dann hat man fast den Eindruck, sie Trauben gerade selbst direkt auf den Steilhängen geerntet zu haben. Dieser Fonseca Jahrgang 2000 ist in der Tat imposant und beeindruckend. Dicht und schwer wie Metall, farbintensiv wie Tantalit, ein Bouquet von Holunderbeeren und Konfitüre wilder Heidelbeeren. Im Mund entfaltet sich eine Harmonie von Zucker und Alkohol.


Winemaker's Notes:

voluptuousness, and, while powerful and mouthfilling, for their breed and balance. In the context of each vintage, they combine the tannic dimension and ""grip"" which give great port its longevity with the structure and complexity that are Fonsecas hallmark. Among the Douros first growths, Fonseca Vintage Port is clearly the ""Pétrus"" of Port. Sporting an opaque, black-colored robe with dark purple trim, the Fonseca Vintage Port exhibits a nose of profound depth. Its sweet black mass of dark fruit and spice aromas leads to a character of immense depth, richness, and weight. Full-bodied, viscous, and almost impenetrable, this dense, backward port is powerful and exceptionally long in the finish. Possibly the most masculine Fonseca I’ve ever encountered, it coats the taster’s palate with licorice, jammy black fruits, and notes of chocolate that last for over a minute. This blockbuster will require at least three decades to fully blossom. Anticipated maturity: 2035-2060.
