Late Bottled Vintage Ports unlike Vintages are only bottled 4 years after their ageing period in oak. This process of Late Bottling allows the wine to benefit from oxygenic evolution in large barrels making them soft, round and enjoyable to drink now. The LBV Port has been an alternative for Vintage Port lovers who prefer not to wait for long-term bottle ageing.
