Discover the legacy of Taylor Fladgate's LBV category, a groundbreaking introduction in 1970 to meet the growing demand for a premium, ready-to-enjoy alternative to vintage port. Crafted from a reserve of the finest full-bodied red Ports, sourced from estate vineyards and esteemed partner vineyards in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior regions, Taylor Fladgate's LBV embodies excellence.
Renowned for pioneering winemaking technology, Taylor Fladgate stands as one of just three Porto producers to innovate piston fermenter techniques, known as Port Toes. This revolutionary method extracts a significantly greater depth of flavor and aroma compared to traditional pump-over fermentation. The fermentation process is expertly halted by introducing grape spirits before complete sugar fermentation, resulting in a sweet, fortified wine.
Distinguishing itself from vintage Ports, which undergo bottle aging after two years in wood, LBVs are bottled after a patient four to six years in wood. This grants them some of the characteristics of vintage Porto but with a shorter bottle aging requirement.
TASTING EXPERIENCE Indulge in the powerful notes of dark cherry, black fruit, and herbal complexity that define Taylor Fladgate's LBV. The wine boasts a harmonious and authoritative character, creating a memorable tasting experience.
PAIRING PERFECTION Elevate your culinary moments by pairing Taylor Fladgate LBV with robust soft and hard cheeses, decadent chocolate desserts, or the freshness of ripe berries.
