Taylor's Lbv 2010

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Taylor Fladgate is considered by many to be the Chateau Latour of Port. Always firmly structured and richly endowed, this Late Bottled Vintage 2009 is a prime example of the signature house style. The 2009 vintage overall for Port was rated "Outstanding" by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Very dark, tar, spicy berry. An affordable LBV with good fruit and richness.

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.

Late Bottled Vintage - 2003 - Taylor's Port: Ein intensives Bukett von Schwarzkirschen und Pflaumen, Kräutern und floralen Noten begeistern die Nase und den Gaumen. Dieser Port zeigt eine fantastische Tiefe, einen opulenten Fruchtgeschmack und ist sehr harmonisch, die Tannine sind präsent, aber gut eingebunden. Ein wunderbarer Dessertwein, der durchaus in großen Gläsern serviert werden kann. Er pass perfekt zu Blauschimmelkäse, wie Stilton oder Roquefort und zu Desserts mit Schokolade oder Beerenfrüchten.Taylor?s zählt zu den weltweit renommiertesten Häusern, besonders beim Late Bottled Vintage. Charakterlich erinnert der LBV Port an den Vintage Port, hat aber die positive Eigenschaft, dass er bereits trinkreif auf den Markt kommt. Dies ist durch seine längere Fassreife möglich, während ein Großteil der Vintage Ports erst nach 15-20 Jahren Lagerung ihr volles Potenzial entwickeln.Weingut: Taylor´s PortRegion: DouroInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 20,4 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 3,9 g/lRestsüße: 121,0 g/l Port - Sherry > Port

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.

Initially the tannins dominate, but then ripe, sweet jelly and juicy fruit shows through, giving the wine its main character. There is some firm tannin, but the wine enjoys generous sweetness.

This is a mature, deliciously perfumed and structured wine. There is a great milk chocolate flavor that balances the flavors of candied fruits.

Medium-bodied and mildly tannic. Black fruits, plums, licorice and earth flavors. A youthful, aromatic nose reveals full-extracted flavors.

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.
