Selling Late Bottled Vintage Port

September 22, 2012
Question by: Karen (Mobile)


I have a Late Bottled 1978 Taylors Vintage Port...I would like to sell.


Hi Karen, As a rule, only the Vintage Ports of top producers will be sought in the secondary market, as these are wines meant for ageing in bottle.  Late Bottled Vintage Port is a style of port which is aged for an average of 5 years in wooden cask before bottling.  For this reason it has matured more rapidly and is considered ready to enjoy when bottled and introduced to the market.  If well-cellared it will hold it's quality for some years, but it is not a wine intended for extended ageing in bottle.  We would suggest you open and enjoy your Late Bottled Vintage Port with friends some time soon.
