Classic Vintage2000

A wet 1999 harvest was followed by a cold and dry Winter with almost no rain. April and May were very wet, June and July very dry and the first half of August extremely hot. Harvest started on 20th September. The resulting wines were big and full bodied with intense colour and very attractive aromas.

The turn of the century was heralded by the production of exceptional Port wines, notably so in the Douro Valley.

 

TASTING NOTES

Rich magenta colour. Powerful, intense, black fruit and cherry aromas with lovely fragrant aromatic notes. On the mouth this wine is in perfect harmony with beautifully balanced fruit and tannins. Rich, elegant, luscious black fruit flavours. Enormous concentration with again this attractive scented quality coming through. Long rich finish. Very stylish.

ACCOLADES

...tastes like a young vintage of Chateau Latour on steroids...this is the leading candidate for the port of the vintage.
