Note: Late Bottle Vintage (LBV)
With a style derived from the Vintage, the Late Bottle Vintages are Ports of excellent quality produced in good years and originating also from a single crop. Bottled six years after the harvest, the LBV’s contrary to Vintage Portos benefit from considerable ageing in barrels. In spite of being full bodied, due to their maturation in wood, LBV’s are softer and smoother than “young” vintage character Ports, thus facilitating their immediate consumption.
