Churchill's LBV Port
LBV has become one of the most popular styles of Port Wine these days. It offers near-Vintage quality at premium Ruby prices.
Following the vintage the young LBV Ports are carefully tasted, selected and blended. The blended Port is then matured in large oak vats for a duration of 4 years where it softens, shedding its harsh tannins, but without losing its full bodied, rich fruit flavours. Finally after 4 years in wood, Late Bottled Vintage Port is bottled unfiltered into dark Vintage Port bottles and laid down to finish its maturation in our temperature conditioned cellars.
Churchill’s Late Bottled Vintage 2005 has a full matured ruby colour with violet tones. A complex nose, combining herbal and resinous notes with touches of mint and white pepper. On the palate, it opens to reveal flavours of pomegranate and black chocolate, supported by firm tannins and well defined acidity.
Decanting: stand the bottle upright for a few hours before decanting. It is best decanted at least two hours before being served. Once opened, LBV Port Wine will keep for up to 10 days. Avoid air and store at a constant cellar temperature.
