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.

The 2013 Vintage Port is part of our mini-vertical this issue. Still tight, intense and showing plenty of power to go with its finesse, this evolves beautifully with air. The firmness on the finish here is impressive, giving this a chance to continue developing beautifully. It is not as expressive as the 2012—it is a bit more backward—but it is a more serious wine in many ways. I'm still a believer in this, although it certainly seems a step behind the biggest winners in the mini-vertical. This has some questions to answer in the cellar, but I think they will be answered to the satisfaction of most. Wine Advocate 95
