External Reviews for Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port
Wine Tasting NotesTaylor, Fladgate LBV does not improve with bottle age, and unless it has been stored for some time needs no decanting. Deep purple in color, with intense, jammy fruit flavors and an aromatic nose of berries, vanilla and a touch of walnut, it is best enjoyed with the traditional full-flavored cheeses and nuts, intense desserts or on its own at the end of a meal.
Taylor’s were pioneers of the LBV category, developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready-to-drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption. Unlike vintage port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled. Taylor’s continues to lead the LBV category of port worldwide, in spite of the fact that many other shippers now also produce an LBV. The wines used to blend Taylor’s LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports, produced at the 2001 harvest, from grapes grown on Taylor’s own vineyards and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas.
Intense purple ruby colour. Concentrated and complex nose full of rich, jammy, cherry and blackcurrant aromas. Full bodied and firm on the palate with a luscious fruity finish. The refined, finely structured Taylor style marks this ripe, full wine, which marries concentrated black currant and plum fruit to intense impressions of licorice, spice and dried fruit in a velvety, elegant texture.
