Classic Nahe Grosse Lages last week from Christopher Rogers, Joe Billesbach and Greg Carlstrom. I struggle with GG wines from here sometimes because the off dry styles are soooo flippin' tasty!
This week: Decalred Port Vintages
Name the declared vintages for the last 15 years and your top 3 producer bottlings.
The IVDP declared port vintages in 2003, 2007 and 2011. Dows, Fonseca and Taylor Fladgate are top producers, amongst many.
Not yet seen, but some declared 2015 (Niepoort and Ramos), most declared 2016. I feel like I read last week that someone has declared 2017 already, making it a split vintage, but I can't find the article again to know who is ahead of the curve on that. It seems like it was Quinta do Noval or one of the Symington properties, but my memory is a bit foggy, so I can't be certain.
It was Quinta do Noval.
