Just by the color, you know this wine has some serious age. Interesting nose, and I'm not exactly sure what I am getting besides apple and caramel, but there are other nuances. The palate is textured with apple skin and citrus turning sweet with butterscotch notes at the end, but it is not cloying. Very bright acidity keeps it alive, and not tired at all. A pleasant surprise.
Still hanging on, though starting to show somehwat oxidized, caramelized sweetness on the palate. Great nose, but fades a bit from there. Totally enjoyable, but pales next to the '99 Jadot Charmes. Drink now.
A very interesting drinking experience. Found this for cheap at a local store and figured I would give it a whirl, bad vintage and all.
The color is caramel colored -- looks oxidized. Cork falls apart as I open it. At this point it was not looking good but this wine was going to suprise.
At first the nose was very muted. very alcoholic. Swirled it around a bit and aromas of buttered popcorn and light toasty oak jump from the glass. Not too much fruit left at this point, but as long as I kept it coool (around 62 degrees or so) this wine was vert unique and enjoyable. As it warmed up it became too flabby and alcoholic. Nonetheless a very enjoyable bottle and it was drank quickly.
