Description

2016 se révèle parmi les plus grands millésimes de la maison Taylors. Assemblage des plus beaux raisins des Quintas de Vargellas, Terra Feita et Junco, ce 2016 se révèle racé, très expressif aromatiquement et puissant en bouche. Potentiel de garde énorme.

La robe est d’un noir quasi-impénétrable. Nez de cassis frais, de violette et de réglisse. A l’ouverture, on perçoit un regain de floral apportant beaucoup d’élégance à ce nez exubérant. En bouche, race, puissance et allonge. Acidité structurante magnifique, trame serrée et tanins fermes mais mûrs. Longueur impressionnante !

Suggestion gourmande

Daube de cerf aux fruits noirs.

    "OMG. This is really the most amazing young Taylor's I have ever tasted. Full-bodied and lightly sweet with super power and intensity. So racy and focused. Yet this has such muscle and intensity. Needs at least eight years to show you everything it has to offer."

    The Wine Advocate
    "The 2016 Vintage Port was originally seen about a week before bottling in a more unsettled incarnation. It is now in the USA and showing in a rather forward fashion for Taylor's. It was aged for 20 months in wood and comes in with 102 grams of residual sugar. This is a pleasure just to smell, with its hints of herbs, eucalyptus and blackberries. Some more time in bottle has made this a classic Port from start to finish in terms of aromatics and flavors. In my almost-40-year history of Port drinking, Taylor's was and is always one of my benchmarks for what a Port should taste and smell like. This delivers all that in spades."

    "This is packed with raspberry, blackberry and blueberry fruit flavors that play off one another, melding with anise, fruitcake and ganache notes. A warm tarry edge coats the finish, revealing an echo of bramble. A seriously grippy, strapping Port, this revels in its power. Best from 2032 through 2055."

    "Dense and heady on the nose with an attractive green, leafy edge. Sweet and pump on the palate with lovely bright cherry and damson fruit – nicely defined but not as big as some. Firm, tight-knit tannins on a long, linear finish which shows off the lovely purity of fruit."

    "Ripe, structured while also fruity, this intense, perfumed Port is opulent while also elegant. Its tannins and great fruit are finely integrated and are rich with potential. Black fruits, berries and a juicy aftertaste add freshness to the wine. Drink from 2028."
