Estate Notes

Fonseca Unfiltered LBV Vintage Port 2011 comes from an excellent Port vintage.

The wines used to produce Fonseca LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports produced at the 2009 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.The wines were aged in wooden vats of 50 pipes (27,500 litres) and bottled after five years.

Fonseca's LBV will benefit from being decanted before serving, as it is not filtered.

Reviews

“Rich, structured and elegant, featuring luxuriantly spiced flavors of dark plum, chocolate and blackberry pie. The svelte finish is creamy, with plenty of minerally notes and a hint of pepper.” Wine Spectator

“The 2011 Late Bottled Vintage Port is an unfiltered field blend that comes with a bar top cork. Rather gorgeous, this fresh, tight and powerful Fonseca is perfectly focused, extracted and tightly-wound, finishing with intensity of flavor laced with some herbs and a hint of garrigue. Yet, everything is always in a very controlled fashion brilliantly supported by its structure. This is a beauty, another super 2011 LBV.” eRobertParker.com
