Ramos-Pinto 30 Year Old Tawny Port NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Ramos-Pinto 30-Year old Tawny is amber colored with orange and garnet tones. The delicate green highlights of the meniscus are characteristic of old cask-aged wines, and illustrate the quality and advanced age of this fine port. This complex, perfectly balanced port shows rich aromas of dried fruit and vanilla. Agitate the glass and spice aromas of cinnamon and cocoa are liberated. In the mouth, the attack is fresh, fine and delicate. Ripe, dried fruit softly merges with almond and hazelnut, culminating in vanilla flavors which linger gracefully on the palate.

When walking in the chateau grounds it is obvious that its history goes further back than the 1855 classification. Citran is actually one of the Medoc's oldest seigneuries. Numerous Marquis de Donnissan, related to the family of France, reigned here for 600 years and only abandoned their chateau in the middle of the 18th century. Since then the chateau has gone through different phases. The various owners and the general financial crisis meant that the surface of the vineyards varied between 90 hectares to less than 4 hectares. The wine's quality reflected these fluctuations. Things got better in 1945 when the Miailhe brothers bought the property. Ten years ago a serious boost in the research for quality was set in motion. An accumulation of hard work and the huge investments initiated by the precedent Japanese owners brought Citran back towards the Haut Medoc elite. This transition was carried through under the leadership of the new and exacting owners. The Merlaut-Villars family is well known in the Medoc. They are true connoisseurs of wine and land. A symbol of this old cru Bourgeois wine's new-found youth is the arrival of young Céline Villars who will from now on represent the chateau. Read less

Aromas of peat announce this grand dowager, with polished dried cherry and berry flavors that feature notes of lemon zest and plum pudding. The long finish oozes fig paste, caramel and chocolate. Very silky. Drink now.-KM Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. N.V. Ramos-Pinto Tawny Port 30 Year Old 750ml

Tawny Port 30 Years - Ramos Pinto : Ein etwas helleres Kastanienbraun erfüllt das Glas. Das bewundernswert elegante Bukett lässt Aromen von Vanille, Trockenfrüchten und Nüssen verschmelzen. Zuerst zeigt es sich warm und charmant, dann präsentieren sich würzige Noten von Zimt und Kakao. Am Gaumen spürt man Mandel und Haselnuss, die mit Lakritze ein überraschendes Geschmackserlebnis bieten. Ein feingliedriger und eleganter Port mit einer großen Aromenvielfalt, der wunderbar zum Ende einer guten Mahlzeit, zum Kaffee oder einer guten Zigarre passt. Er ist aber auch als anspruchsvoller Aperitif ideal geeignet.Weingut: Ramos PintoRegion: DouroRebsorte: Tinta Barocca, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão, Tinta RorizInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 19,5 Vol.%Gesamtsäure: 4,6 g/lRestsüße: 119,9 g/lFassreife: Holzfass (mindestens 30 Jahre)empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 18-22 °CAuszeichnungen:Trophy of Best Tawny Port International Wine Challenge (IWC) 2007 Port - Sherry > Port
