(Port) Wine of the month March 2017: Douro Boys Cuvee 2011 (Douro DOC)
Under the guidance of Dirk Niepoort some of the best lots of the the Quintas Vale Meao, do Crasto, Vallado, Vale D. Maria and Niepoort were chosen to produce this very special cuvee. Only for the second time after 2005 (where only DOC wine is available) the group bottled Douro-DOC-wine and a Vintage Port, only in Magnums and in very small quantities.
Strong violett reflextions in the deep red colour. Still reductive, the bouquet reveals complex and balanced red berry fruit, cassis and cherry. Perfectly integrated tannins and acidity and a great complexity on the palate. Long aftertaste. 19/20
