Rozes Vintage '05 Port 750ml
Serving Vintage Port• The Vintage Port Rozs 2005 must be served:- chilled, between 10 and 14,- in a wine glass.The coolness concentrates the aromas that are released most readily in a large glass.The pairings• ROZES Vintage Port 2005, with its incomparable aromas of black cherries, must be enjoyed chilled if it is to reveal its full finesse and fruitiness. It is a delightful companion for foie gas in a cloth, Serrano ham, vegetables marinated la romaine, scampis in tempura, Venetian veal liver, Mont d'Or vacherin cheese, fruity desserts and, of course, a moelleux au chocolat adorned with a strawberry coulis or crme anglaise. All the ingredients to counter any unlikely indifference to this aromatic festival.Tasting NotesEye:• Its beautiful dark red colour with slightly purplish nuances simply testifies to a wine from a vineyard bathed in hot, intense sunshine for many months. Butit is also proof that the wine's fresh fruit character has not been troubled by any oxidation. If there is an underlying opaqueness behind this rich colour, thenthis is completely normal as a wine like this one simply has to age in the bottle. It would be nonsensical to deprive it of all these organic materials which are the true precursors and drivers of its development..Nose:• The nose of this wine opens onto a wonderful world where the red fruits -cherries and mulberries - are combined with notes of brown tobacco enhanced by some spicy flourishes. A certain fleshiness - the harbinger of its strength - comes into play unleashing all its richness in an understated fashion..Palate:• This delicate, velvety sensation is confirmed by full softness and a smoothnessthat points to a great Porto vintage. It is straight, with no trace of artifice, frank and self-assured. All the heat it soaked up during these long sun-drenched days is present today in our glass which, in turn, unfolds in our mouths. You have the feeling that the glass contains a concentrated salad of red berries, nectarines and dark-red plums, all this accompanied by a chocolate fondant cake that unleashes the full extent of its softness and very slightly bitter tannin flourishes. An aromatic festival, a delight for the senses that cannot fail to please! 2005 following in the footsteps of the great Rozs Vintage Ports. The outstanding Vintage yearsof Rozs are 2003, 2000, 1997, 1994, 1991, 1985 and 1977.
