 Product Description

LBV was developed as an alternative to Vintage Port for more relaxed and informal occasions.
Like Vintage, LBV is a very high quality Port from a single year. However, unlike Vintage Port, which is bottled after only two years in wood, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled. The wines used to produce Fonseca LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full-bodied red Ports produced at the harvest, from grapes grown on Fonseca's own vineyards and on other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the Douro.
LBV Unfiltered is aged in large wooden vats and then drawn off into bottle with no fining or filtration. The result is a naturally expressive wine which has sacrificed none of its depth and fullness of flavour. Late Bottled Vintage is bottled when ready to drink. This Port benefits from being decanted before serving, as it is not filtered when bottled. A limited quantity of this outstanding blend was produced.

TASTING NOTES
Very deep purple black with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is tight, with impressive depth and background, suggesting a wine with plenty still to give.

The base of brooding dark berry fruit is laced with liquorice and dark chocolate. Fleeting balsamic, plummy notes emerge as the nose gradually opens up. On the palate, the wine has exceptional weight and volume, supported by a mesh of thick, dense tannins.

Luscious blackberry jam and plum flavours surge through into a seemingly endless finish. A powerful and uncompromising Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage retaining every ounce of aroma and flavour.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Fonseca LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.
