In 1692, an important chapter in the history of Port began. Job Bearsley, an English merchant, travelled to Portugal to venture into the wine business, founding the company we now know as Taylor Fladgate. Today, it is one of the oldest and most renowned Port producers, and its Ports are considered amongst the finest in the world.
Taylor Fladgate were pioneers of the LBV category, developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready-to-drink alternative to Vintage Port. It’s finely tuned and beautifully balanced, medium-bodied with lovely sweetness and taut, linear tannins. It has deep and complex flavors of black fruits, dark cherry, dried fruit, and herbs on the luscious palate. Pairs well with robust hard cheeses qand desserts made with chocolate or fresh berries.
