Réccua – 40 anos – Porto

The nose is aromatic, powerful and offers a small richness as well as a fine freshness. It reveals notes of dried zest, potpourri and small notes of zante currant associated with fine touches of cigar boxe, dried grape as well as discreet hints of lemon zests, Timut pepper, spices and a very discreet hint of lemon tree flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers finesse, tension, dynamism, a fine acidulous frame, fat, richness as well as a good guideline. On the palate this Porto expresses notes of cristallized lemon, acidulous clementine and small notes of dry apricot, kumquat associated with touches of fig, praline/pâtisseries, almond, hazelnut, discreet hints of candied quince, toasted as well as very discreet hints of chocolate and tobacco. Good length.
