Only Magnums (Behrens am Kai in Düsseldorf 1 star restaurant): A Barriere Bottling. Crazy intensive nose after cassis and dark berries, some truffles, in the palate slender and elegant, the fine acidity gives the wine a strong backbone, the tannis are still present and silky, great effort, still well drinkable over the next years, at least from magnum, 97-98
Considerable fade - orange rim but still a ruby core. Bright and clean; Intensely mineral and savoury on the nose. Earthy, meaty notes, cedar and leather on the nose. Some well hidden cassis also. Evolved and complex; Very mature palate but shows lovely elegance. Lots of cedar and cigarbox, tobacco. Certainly old but still offers plenty of enjoyment. Incredibly persistent finish. A real charmer.
