Product Description

  • Red Portugal Wine
  • Taylor's Ports represent a three hundred year old tradition that began with the foundation of Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman in 1692. Three centuries of independent family ownership and experience ensure that Taylor's Ports continue to be made to the highest standards. Produced from rich fruity wines from single harvest, Late Bottled Vintage was developed as an alternative to Vintage Port for more informal occasions. Its longer wood ageing means that it is ready to drink when bottled, needs no decanting and will remain in good condition for several weeks after the bottle is first opened.
  • Wine of Portugal
  • Gold International Wine Challenge 2013 - quality assured
  • Pack size: 75cl

Vinification Details

  • Late Bottled Vintage, as the name suggests, is bottled later than a vintage Port, remaining in wood between four and six years. During this relatively long period of wood ageing, an LBV matures and settles down - it is ready to drink when bottled, does not need to be decanted and can be served by the glass for several weeks after the cork is drawn.

History

  • Taylor's Ports represent a three hundred year old tradition that began with the foundation of Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman in 1692. Three centuries of independant family ownership and experience in producing the finest Ports of all styles ensure that Taylor's Ports continue to be made to the highest standards, combining the best of tradition and innovation.

Regional Information

  • Taylor's is the proud owner of extensive grade A vineyard sites in the Douro in Portugal. This unique terroir separated from the sea by the Marão mountains and protected from the rainy winds of the Atlantic, has a climate of baking, dry summers and severe winters. It is a land of austere beauty. Taylor's were pioneers of the Late Bottled Vintage style, developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready-to-drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption.

The best easily available LBV?

5 stars

Perhaps it would be since Taylors invented the style and the 2011 is certainly outstanding better than 2010. This has some muscle and backbone to give structure to the fruit. I`d drink Grahams on its own but Taylor with some strong cheese or a not too sweet dessert.

Mediocre

3 stars

This is an LBV so my expectations are not that high which is just as well. There is some sweet fruit and a bit of spice and well that is it folks. Charitably, three stars, but next time I'd buy the Grahams LBV which is reliably good.

Should be kept secret

5 stars

I would love to keep this one secret, but I can't. Fully rounded fruit flavours that subtlely melt on the tongue, make this port a delightful evening tipple. This is not a high priced port and it is both ready for drinking immediatley and lasts well when opened. It is well suited for casual relaxing and for social dinners also. Port is a win win situation for us in the gift league. We ocasionally used to take a bottle of wine when visiting friends for dinner, but a bottle of this is much more fitting as this Port will always suit any occasion where friends gather. And, if they choose not to open it, you will be remembered with a smile once they taste it. Definitely a must buy again for us.

A dangerously delicious wine

4 stars

A quite delicious LBV port from a marvellous vintage. Still quite youthful but lovely fruit and beautifully rounded in the mouth. It goes down all too easily, hence the dangerous bit! It's so easy to forget the 20% alcolhol in this totally scrummy wine.

Excellent value

5 stars

We all enjoyed the port over the Christmas holidays but I managed to keep one bottle back for future celebrations!
