Porto LBV 2006

SKU: 4021636 Categories: ,


Late Bottled Vintage is sold as a compromise between vintage port and barrel port. Late Bottled Vintage is a wine from a good year, which is stored in barrels. Instead of bottling the port after two years, you wait until the port is around 4-6 years.

At Quinta do Pégo this special Late Bottled Vintage is made due to the fact that 2006 was an extremely good year with perfect weather conditions.

Mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz grapes have been used for this port and all grapes are grown at Quinta do Pégo’s A classified vineyards in the Douro Valley in Portugal.

It is an elegant and extraordinairy port with deep red colour, characterized by floral and chemical notes and ripe red fruits. In the mouth it has a very good structure, with silk tannins, showing a lovely and attractive style. The taste is just as good as many vintage ports.

This port is ready to drink now if you want a young, concentrated and very fruity taste. But if you prefer a more mature and soft port, you should wait a couple of years – and then remember that decanting is necessary in order to avoid the natural depôt which arises because the wine is unfiltered (like vintage port). That is one of the reasons why it is possible to obtain this extremely high quality.

This port is perfect as an ”after-dinner-drink, but you can also enjoy Quinta do Pégo Late Bottled Vintage 2006 with creamy cheese, chocolate and candied fruit. Serve it slightly chilled or at temperature between 14ºC and 16ºC
