Niepoort LBV 20012

Availability: In stock

£20.35

Quick Overview

Late Bottled Vintage port is a from a single year. The wine ages 4-6 years in old oak casks. Niepoort LBV fills the gap between the young drinking rubies and the 15 - 20 year aged vintage ports. This led to the idea in the 1960s to age the wine 4 to 6 years in large casks before bottling, thereby producing a wine with the style of a Vintage Port with its deep colour and concentration of fruit but with a more mature character caused by the longer ageing in wood. Late botted vintage is the perfect port to accompany dark/bitter chocolate desserts.

Details

Late Bottled Vintage port is a from a single year. The wine ages 4-6 years in old oak casks (opposed to Vintage that ages 2-3). Niepoort LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour. This led to the idea in the 1960s to age the wine 4 to 6 years in large casks before bottling it, thereby producing a wine with the style of a Vintage Port with its deep colour and concentration of fruit but with a more mature character caused by the longer ageing in wood. Late botted vintage is the perfect port to accompany chocolate desserts, specially if dark/bitter chocolate is used!
