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.
