Pinot Noir Tasting - France, NZ, Australia (G&E's, Melbourne): Had as part of France/Australia/NZ Pinot Noir tasting dinner. It had the most on the nose of the first flight, and was clearly the French wine. Still has lots of life (especially for a 20 yr old Pinot). Very savoury, leathery, gamey. Revealed rich bacon-fat on the nose after time in glass. Awesome nose after 1hr in glass.
Wonderfully cellared bottle, in great shape. Nose is very elegant, very reserved still, pu erh tea, earthiness, wonderful balance, and after about 4 hours in the bottle, the fruit started to come back, this thing still has much life left in it! Wonderful balance but you can sense the tension of the power that still behind this wine.
