Do you know ?
Originally, the LBV (Late Bottled Vintage) was born from the unsold barrels of Vintage Port. Finding no taker, the wines remained much longer in the barrels. In 1958, the IVDP (Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto) formalised this port to become a category in itself.
Domain and appellation
Founded in 1692, the Taylor's house is one of the oldest houses and the last of a family factory making port wine.
- Terroir: Located on schist hillsides, vineyards rest on a granitic basement. The culture is carried out on terraces clinging to steep cliffs that flow into the Douro Valley.
- Viticulture: La Maison Taylor's sources its wines with Varguellas Quintas, Terra Feita and do Junco.
- Vinification: The Taylor's LBV is assembled from a selection of the best wines (from the same year), high levels of 4 to 6 years in casks before being bottled. This more prolonged contact with the wood structure refines the wine, so it is ready to drink as soon as it is bottled.
