Vintage Port 2000
96 points, “The 2000 Fonseca continues to exude finesse and focus on the nose, with pure blackberry, juniper berries, liquorice and a touch of sloes… The harmony and symmetry are alluring, the finish precise and demonstrating the persistency to suggest a long future ahead.” – Wine Advocate
Hitting our website just as this fabulous wine enters its drinking window, Fonseca Vintage Port 2000 is simply sensational. Many compare Taylor’s Port to Bordeaux’s Château Latour. If that’s the case, then the velvety, fruit-driven and sensual Fonseca must be Port’s Pétrus. Clean and pure, this is a Port that will brighten the palate even after the heaviest of meals.
While tasting one of Fonseca’s famous Ports, respected wine critic Matthew Jukes wrote, “We should all drink more Port, as it’s one of the world’s most iconic wine styles.” So enthralled by this great Port house, he went on to describe them as a “swaggering talent”. So, what better way could there be to experience this “swaggering talent” and “drink more Port” than by adding one of their Vintage Ports to your wine rack forthwith.
Owned by The Fladgate Partnership, who also look after Taylor’s and Croft, Fonseca has a cult following. It remains the choice of those in-the-know, maybe precisely because it has a slightly lower profile than its stable mates. However, this is very much a Port House firing on all cylinders; the quality of their Ports is through the roof and should not be missed.
