Ramos Pinto Collector Porto Reserva NV

Member Review by duncan 906:

This port was served with the cheese and used for the toasts at the end of a wedding lunch I attended at the weekend.It is a Ruby style port [meaning fruitier ] from Ramos Pinto,one ofthe smaller port houses. It is a blend of wines from several years made from a mixture of grape varieties.Grape spirit is added to the wines after 5 days of fermentation to produce a sweet wine of 19.5% ABV.I did like this port.There is plenty of a plum,cherry.date and raisin style fruit there and it is certainly sweet.It is also very smooth and unlike some ports the alchol was not that noticable In short this is a quality product and one of the nicest ports I have tasted

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

clear and definitely not transparent, intense ruby-red colour with some granat nuances, indicating some aging. Very consistent. Tannic aromas at first, which develop into an intense and complex bouquet with fruity (cherries under spirit) and spicy (coffee, tobacco and wood) notes. Nice acidity which paires and equilibrates well the warm and sweet sensations in mouth, very persistent.
