  • Hard wine to score as it mixes great qualities with significant defects. Worth noting that I've experienced a lot of bottle variation with 2004s and while there's no indication that this was an atypical bottle, I can't rule out that possibility.

    Orangey rim.

    Immediately upon opening: noticeable '2004' character to the nose (whether you call that coccinelle/ladybird/ladybug taint or pyrazine). This faded over 2 hours to be a minor note of complexity and not unpleasant

    Wine was at first short with metallic elements both nose and mouth. After 15 minutes the wine was at its best - sweetness, light red fruits, good length. I would have scored it 82 at that point.

    After 60 minutes the hard/ metallic element started creeping back in to ultimately dominate by which time we abandoned the wine.

    It seems to be declining based on my TN from 4 years ago. This was my last bottle but if I had any more I'd drink up.

  • It had hints of greenness like most 2004 red, but it had slowly faded gradually as times went up. Very nice red fruits, tea leaves, and herbs. It's drinking nicely now, but I doubt that it will improve further.

  • Beautifully aging NSG. Still Very lively fruit, no hints of any of the 2004 blight. Good finish.

  • Very nice example of what an 04 NSG should be. Fruit still alive, nice balance, good acidity, not showing any signs of fading.
