Description

Quinta Do Noval est surement l’une des Quinta des plus racées du Douro. Elle a été cédée par les Van Zeller au groupe Axa en 1993 (Pichon Longueville Baron à Pauillac, Petit Village à Pomerol, Suduiraut à Sauternes, Arlot à Vosne et Nuits-Saint-Georges, Disznoko à Tokaj…). Implantée à Pinhão, c’est la cuvée “Nacional” qui a fait la réputation de la maison ! Elle est issue d’une parcelle de vignes en franc de pied à partir de Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Touriga Nacional, Sousão et Tinta Roriz. 18 mois d’élevage en foudre de 2500 litres.

Quel grand Porto ! On retrouve l’identité de la maison Do Noval avec une race supplémentaire qui caractérise la cuvée emblématique “Nacional”, produite uniquement dans les plus grands millésimes. Le nez évoque la cerise kirschée, le cacao frais, la badiane, la confiture de myrtille, le tout enveloppé dans un écrin subtilement fumé. En bouche, “Nacional 19” est une vraie bombe. Attaque puissante, l’équilibre de la liqueur atteint des sommets de perfection. À encaver au moins 5 ans, potentiel d’au moins 100 ans...

Suggestion gourmande

Canon de biche laquée au porto, pommes grenailles aux épices méditerranéennes.

    "The 2019 Vintage Port Nacional is a field blend, mostly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Sousão and Tinta Roriz, aged for 18 months in old wood. It was bottled May 4, 2021, with 100 grams of residual sugar and 19.4% alcohol. This opened rather differently than the regular Noval Port this report, showing more open and expressive fruit, more cherries and even more power as they both aired out. The aromatics are excellent here too, but more fruit driven. When I came back to both some two days later, this brilliant and graceful Nacional made the wonderful regular Noval seem clumsy. It's the difference in styles, really, and reasonable minds might differ in preference, but this Nacional has more precision and more finesse. It is brighter and laser-like focused with an expression of fruit that seems so pure that you can almost think they used a spoon to fill the bottle after just crushing the grapes. The regular Noval, by contrast, seems rounder, more full-bodied and richer, albeit less defined.They both have a fair share of power. On first taste, the regular Noval seemed less powerful. Two days later, it seemed more powerful, but the Nacional fruit was always more interesting and far more intense in its character. Three days later, there was certainly still plenty of firmness on the Nacional finish. If the structure is excellent, the fruit is sensational. Three days after opening, the fruit had not budged an inch, showing nothing but exuberance and youth. The juicy finish of this very fresh Porto seals the deal. True, it was in bottle only about two months or so when tasted, but its quality is not in question. If you want a collectible and can afford it, this is the easy pick. If neither of those is true, the regular Noval offers way more bang for the buck. Both have significant aging potential. As promising as the regular Noval is, however, this seems to have a lot more upside as well as a lot more "wow" factor.I have given this wine a drinking window that begins in about 10 years, but of course, that is a minimum for this as well as the regular Noval. These days, Ports are more refined, so you can theoretically start sooner, most of the time. In truth, it will need 20 years before it is firing on all cylinders. Purists will suggest longer."
