Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 96 points

  • It is fascinating to have the chance to taste such an old wine. Emotions are overwhelming. Amber in colour with a tertiary and complex nose of medium intensity. Porcini mushrooms and dried herbs around a core of bergamot, honey and quince. Some botrytis present. Medium on palate with possibly around 40g/l residual sugars and an athletic acidity that lifts fruit and balances light alcohol and medium- body. Phenolic, solid structure with a long, limey finish. There is absolutely no way to imagine that this was a 100 year old wine. Evolving over time. Thank u Stef...

  • Since my friends and the MW with us suggested this was Huet, I go along. The bottle however bared only vintage (1911) and a sticker saying "negociant". This was the surprise of the evening healthy looking gold and wonderful nose of wax, honey and mushrooms (i.e. botrytis). Medium sweet, amazing concentration and sky high acidity balancing it. Supple mouthfeel. Citrus peel, apricot and botrytis notes in the mouth. Great with chestnut soup with ginger. No concessions made. Fantastic wine!
