The Exceptional 2011 Vintage Port: Trailer – Free Video
May 22, 2013
Last week we visited Oporto and the beautiful Douro Valley, the only place on earth where real Port wine can be made. This trip was particularly special: We were coming for the first universal vintage declaration since 2007. And we weren't disappointed.
On our first day, James blind-tasted almost 50 vintage Ports, and he was soon excited. The wines remind him of some of the legendary years: 1994, 1966, 1963. And the more shippers from the top Port houses he spoke to over the next few days, the more they cemented his feelings that 2011 is an extraordinary year for vintage Port.
In the coming weeks we will be posting these interviews and videos with producers from around the region. Stay tuned.
