Golden coloured with a honeyed, nutty, flower blossom filled nose. Full, weighty and quite savoury, fills the palate with mature quince and pear fruit, lanolin and a touch of spice. Good length. Delicate, lovely and elegant, but showing its age a bit.
This was a whim buy not long ago, I know ’86 isn’t a great vintage but it was well-priced. Waxy, honeysuckle, lemon, some oxidative notes. Alive, but fading. Interesting, but I’m happier with the better-acided wines. B-/B
Relatively deep-coloured, lemon yellow with a golden sheen; open, deep, rich fruit (lemon, peach), slightly nutty; good weight, harmonious, good grip, lovely acidity; good length. Starts to oxidise after a few hours, will not keep.
