Churchill's Port Late Bottled Vintage 2005

Churchill's Port Late Bottled Vintage 750ml 2005     
Sku: 1843254*

Late Bottled means bottled after 4, rather than 2 years in wood. Our LBV is a rich, concentrated port from one good harvest, which has been aged for 4 years in wood. The word "traditional” means that it is bottled without any filtration or refrigeration so that the wine can continue developing in the bottle before it is released for sale, two years later. At the end of the bottle ageing period, it is ready for immediate drinking. or alternatively, and this is purely optional, it can be cellared for a few more years to acquire one of the more pronounced characteristics of Vintage Port, which is a "bottle nose” - at which stage it may have formed a sediment and require to be decanted.

Review
"Medium, full body. Lots of fruit. Medium tannin. Medium sweetness. Reminiscent of black fruits, leather, sweet tobacco. Classy and rich with youthful character prevalent” – The Wine Enthusiast – LBV Champion – 91 points (1990) "A very fresh LBV, with violet, berry and cherry character. Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with a fresh fruit aftertaste. Delicious. Drink now." – James Suckling – Wine Spectator

Rating
 Wine Spectator 93 points (Apr 30 2015)
Refined and sumptuous, showing mature flavors of plum pudding, dried blackberry and raspberry, lifted by fresh acidity and supported by plenty of grip. The creamy finish offers luscious chocolate mousse notes, with hints of pepper. Drink now. 230 cases imported. -KM

Food pairing
Roasted chestnuts - Stilton cheese or Portuguese Serra cheese.
