Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 90.7 points

  • Amber-bronze in colour. Stewed apricot / apricot skin and toffee on the nose. High intensity.

    On the palate the toffee holds centre ground with apricot in close support, but there's both complexity (including some nice seville orange marmalade, notably coming through in strength on the finish) and creeping madeirisation - you can see where this wine is going. For all that toffee (and a reasonably luscious body), the wine might start sweet, but it heads clearly towards dryness on the finish.

    With a risky punt such as this, you'd at least hope for interesting - and in that it delivers. It's best may be behind it (and surely never great when at peak). Judged against the price though, it's done well.

  • Bordeaux North to South (My house): Caramel, a little restrained nose; marzipan and pickled orange peel. Lovely, but could do with some additional acidity.

  • Very refined bouquet. Acidity, bitterness and sweetness. An old, but still more than ok wine.
