The latest edition of the prestigious Wine Spectator magazine highlights the quality of five Portuguese wines.
Each year, Wine Spectator editors survey the wines reviewed over the previous 12 months and select the Top 100. This annual list honors successful wineries, regions and vintages around the world. This year, Portugal obtained 5 positions with two fortified wines and 3 still wines. The Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage 2009 reached the 16th place and is the best rated Portuguese wine on the list. The wine critic Kim Marcus was responsible for the Portuguese wines tasting and dedicated a special article to both Port and Madeira wines that integrate the Top 25. He considered the Taylor’s LBV 2009 “filled with luscious fresh red and dark fruit flavors, plenty of spice and chocolate notes, and vibrant sweetness”. The Blandy´s Bual Madeira 2002 is a rich-tasting introduction to the glories of Madeira, with plenty of smoky accents to the dried tropical fruit flavors that are topped by crème brûlée notes, with an unctuous, creamy finish.
