Late Bottled Vintage

LATE BOTTLED VINTAGE

LBV stands for Late Bottled Vintage. LBV was developed as an alternative to Vintage Port for more relaxed and informal occasions.

Like Vintage, LBV is a very high quality Port from a single year. However, unlike Vintage Port, which is bottled after only two years in wood, LBV is bottled after four to six years and is ready to drink when bottled.

The wines used to produce Krohn LBV were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full-bodied red Ports produced, from grapes grown in the Douro Valley vineyards.

Serving

The wine benefits from being served between 16ºC to 18ºC. The particular qualities of this wine allow it to be enjoyed over an extended period of time once opened, without losing its freshness and vibrancy. Optimum drinking time after opening the bottle is within two months.

Storage

This wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting. The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and at a cool and constant temperature.

Pairing Suggestions

Krohn LBV is the perfect finish to any meal. Excellent with fully flavoured cheeses, especially blue cheeses such as Stilton or Roquefort. It is also delicious with desserts made with chocolate or berry fruits.
