Late Bottled Vintage, or LBV, is the most popular premium Port style in both England and Canada, accounting for one out of every five Port purchases in the United Kingdom and more than a quarter of all Port consumed in Canada. Vintage Port and LBV both offer a single-year selection of very outstanding full-bodied red ports. The primary distinction between the two styles is how they are matured. Vintage Port is aged on wood for only around twenty months before being transferred to a bottle to mature further. Late Bottled Vintage is, as the name implies, bottled later and aged in wood for four to six years. An LBV matures and settles down throughout this unusually long time of wood ageing; it is ready to drink when bottled, does not need to be decanted, and can be served by the glass for several weeks after the cork is pulled. LBV was created as a high-quality, but more inexpensive and drinkable, alternative to Vintage port, to be consumed by the glass on a daily basis. Taylor’s current Chairman, Alistair Robertson, initially introduced it in 1970 with the Late Bottled Vintage 1965. Despite the fact that many other wineries now produce this great style of wine, Taylor’s LBV – the original Late Bottled Vintage – remains the gold standard in the category, and the first choice of the discerning Port consumer. The color is deep crimson. Fresh, robust blackberry and cherry aromas are combined with subtle notes of licorice and spice in this beautiful and stylish nose. On the palate, robust but well-integrated tannins enhance the deep and intense black berry flavor. The wine has remarkable balance and refinement, which is typical of Taylor’s approach.
