Niepoort Vintage 2015 75 cl.
Joyau de la Couronne de la maison Niepoort, ce Vintage doit sa renommée aux vendanges exceptionnelles qui lui donnent le jour, toujours marquées par les conditions climatiques idéales de Cima Cordo et par la qualité de ses vieilles vignes de 80 à 100 ans d'âge. Déployant toute la puissance caractéristique d'un Vintage, Niepoort Vintage 2015 se révèle profond, enveloppé et voluptueux. Tannique sur un fond épicé, il est également légèrement piquant et balsamique.
L'avis des experts
The 2015 Vintage Port is a field blend from old vines (80 to 100 years old). It comes in with 104 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is another gorgeous Vintage Port from Niepoort this issue, elegant, but very powerful and focused. I may have a minor preference for the Bioma this issue, but reasonable minds might differ and this is very fine. The tightly wound precision and serious backbone make this a 2015 with plenty of room to grow in the cellar, but that's not all. It has fine intensity of flavor and freshness to go with the big tannins here, making this a very serious Port on all fronts. It is impressive overall. It was a tank sample when seen, but it was the final blend and due to be bottled in two weeks when tasted. It should be in the marketplace by the time this article appears. - Mark Squires.
This is a very perfumed wine, fragrant with violets and with dry tannins. It has a juicy character along with acidity. The wine has a dry style, very firm and dense. It will age well, ready to drink from 2026. - Roger Voss.
