Taylor Fladgate were pioneers of the LBV category, developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready-to-drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption. Unlike vintage port, which is bottled after only two years in wood and ages in bottle, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled. Taylor Fladgate continues to lead the LBV category of port worldwide, in spite of the fact that many other shippers now also produce an LBV.

Powerful, aromatic nose with lots of black fruit, plum and dark cherry. The floral and herbal notes that come through on the nose add lovely nuances to the bouquets. The palate is rounded, smooth and balanced. Flavours of blueberry and raspberry in abundance with a delicious touch of black liquorice. In true Taylor style the wine is well structured with big firm tannins that holds the wine nicely together. The finish is wonderfully long.
