Description
 
Quinta do Noval are best known for Nacional, the most renowned and sought after of all vintage ports. The quality of the whole portfolio of wines took a noticeable upturn after the acquisition of the estate by AXA Millesimes in 1993 and the arrival of Christian Seely to oversee improvements. These included a replanting programme and a strict selection of fruit, both in the vineyard and at the winery. Christian has since been promoted to control all the AXA properties, which include Chateau Pichon Baron in Pauillac, leaving control in the capable hands of Noval’s winemaker António Agrellos. In particular, Antonio is fanatical about producing the freshest possible tawny and colheita ports and pretty much bottles them to order.

The 2007 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is a star of the vintage. Dense purple-colored, it gives up an already complex aromatic array of lavender, Asian spices, incense, and an amalgam of black fruits with a hint of chocolate in the background. Plush and mouth-filling, this large-scaled Port manages an uncanny blending of elegance and power. Long and savory in the finish, it will continue to blossom for another 20+ years and drink well through its 50th birthday if not longer. Wine Advocate 94
