Ramos Pinto Ports have been awarded outstanding scores in Richard Mayson’s “Top 20 Ports for Christmas”, for Decanter Magazine.
Richard Mayson began his career at The Wine Society and specialises in the wines of Iberia, especially fortified wines. He is the author of four books, including “The Wines and Vineyards of Portugal” and “Port and the Douro”.
Richard recommended Ramos Pinto’s Late Bottled Vintage and 20 Year Old Tawny as some of the best Ports to enjoy over Christmas, scoring the LBV 90 points and 20 Year Old Tawny an outstanding 98 points.
Mayson described the LBV:
“Ripe nose yet showing attractive restraint, with a touch of lavender. Rich and full of deep and dark sensuous fruit with lovely freshness and firm, ripe tannins giving good grip. Serious yet vibrant LBV.”
And the 20 Year Old Tawny:
“From a single estate where a quarter of the vines are more than 80 years old. Soft and seamless, boasting waves of dates, dried figs, brazil nuts and toasted almonds. Suave silky texture and wonderful savoury- sweet length. Supremely good.”
