Food Pairings for Taylor Fladgate Lbv Porto
delicious! not overpowering/overwhelming!
Nic liked this more than I did. We disagreed about the alcohol--I felt it was overpowering, Nic felt like it was well balanced. I preferred the Osborne 2003 LBV, but it doesn't have a stopper cork.
Deep maroon color to this wine with a nose that is restrained and waiting to develop. A nice minerally chocolate component is the first thing to really hit me followed by dark fruits, deep and mysterious with light strawberry/violet wisps. Nice and round in the mouth with a firm acidity gentle tannins and a medium sweetness that leaves your mouth fresh on the finish. Lot's of chocolate and violets on this wine, followed by a pure minerality that I associate with schist for better or worse. As I go back to the wine the nose begins to show more and more violets and the palate starts to develop anise, and dark cherry notes, all the time encased in a dark chocolate exterior. Nice wine.
External Reviews for Taylor Fladgate Lbv Porto
Das intensive Bouquet ist vielschichtig, komplex und ausgewogen. Es verheisst ein besonderes Trinkvergnügen! Dieser Jahrgangsportwein, der erst nach einigen Jahren der Fassreife auf die Flasche gefüllt wird – auf englisch «late bottled vintage» –, hält was er in der Nase ankündigt. Der Porto LBV entführt auf eine sensorische Abenteuerreise: vielfältige Aromen von reifen, gedörrten, eingemachten und gekochten Früchten sowie eine Palette von exotischen Gewürzen offenbaren sich im Gaumen und im beinahe unendlichen Finale, das so typisch für einen Klasse-Portwein ist. Körper und Gehalt einerseits sowie Harmonie und Eleganz andererseits sind die Qualitätsfaktoren, auf denen dieser bedeutende Porto basiert.
With its charming aromas of spice drop, ripe cherries and schistous minerality, this Taylor looks set to zoom. And it is tasty, but also a bit soft and lacking structure - something unexpected from a Port under the Taylor label. Turns chocolaty on the finish.
Medium-bodied and mildly tannic. Black fruits, plums, licorice and earth flavors. A youthful, aromatic nose reveals full-extracted flavors.
Full, rich and fresh nose of blackberry, chocolate and cassis aromas. Deliciously mouth-filling, chocolate flavours, medium weight, concentrated, fine length. - Winery
The best-selling LBV keeps up its quality impressively. With its flavors of rich fruit cake and ripe tannins, it is soft and supple, and ready to drink without aging. But it has a touch of elegance and style that pushes it well up in quality.
This is a mature, deliciously perfumed and structured wine. There is a great milk chocolate flavor that balances the flavors of candied fruits.
