Niepoort 20 Years Old Tawny 75 cl.
Véritable friandise élevée deux longues décennies dans de petits fûts de chêne après une fermentation traditionnelle en cuves de granit, le 20 Year Old Tawny de Niepoort déploie corpulence et douceur à la fois. Particulièrement fruité sans se montrer écœurant pour autant, il offre en bouche de magnifiques arômes d'orange et d'abricot.
L'avis des experts
The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2016 with a long cork. On first taste, I liked this far more than the 1997 Colheita reviewed this issue (about the same age). This has a bit more weight, a bit more intensity of complex flavors, a hint of brandy and a bit more power. That said, the Colheita stands out more for its texture and freshness. I personally liked the balance a bit better on the 1997, but they are both awfully good and each will justly have their fans. Or, resolve the problem by buying some of each. There's no right answer--and no wrong one. Pricing was not available as of this writing. - Mark Squires.
A deliciously satisfying wood-aged Port. It has an intense fruitiness, with layers of acidity and oxidated notes. It's concentrated, yet shows lightness and poise. - Roger Voss.
