Elegant and fruity, Taylor Fladgate's Late Bottled Vintage displays the heritage of the great Taylor Fladgate vintages in an approachable early-maturing style. LBV makes an excellent match for a goat’s milk cheese such as a fresh Valençay or a Sainte-Maure. As the thick crumbly texture of the chèvre dissolves in contact with the wine, the ripe and opulent fruitiness of the LBV merges with the rich tangy flavours of the cheese in a sublime synergy.
Taylor Fladgate developed the Late Bottled Vintage style and remains its benchmark producer. Like Vintage Port, LBV is blended from wines of a single year. Whereas Vintage Port spends only two years in wood, LBV is aged in oak vats for between four and six years, hence the term ‘Late Bottled’.
