​2015 ports seep out, subregional names to emerge too?


Jancis writes We haven’t had a serious vintage port declaration for a while (see The best 2011 reds anywhere) but in April and May of this year most of the important port shippers launched some baby 2015s on to the market, and extremely good most of those we have tasted are too, as you can see below. 

You can read about the special qualties of the 2015 growing season in the schist and slate of the Douro (pictured here) in this vintage report we published in October 2015, but clearly some firepower is being saved for the 2016 vintage...
