Oily texture. Marzipan on the nose. Appeared quite dry. Became better / more complex with airing. Had expected some more from this wine, after a 47 we had several years ago. But then it could be just a bad bottle (as I see from other notes that bottle variation can be a problem with this one)
1st Seder at Mom's new house. No formal note taken as Sam ( 9 at the time ) and I were engaged in a deep discussion of Einstein vs Neils Bohr and the merit of string theory. Instead of wine notes my notebook is full of ( mostly ) Sam's Notes on calculus and logrithmic equations with a few explanations added by me. The pages are saved for proof of Sam's early scientific days when he is a famous scientist! As usual this wine was drinking wonderfully. I gave Sam a small taste ( his first wine ) to which he replied "this is pretty good". I have spoiled him. How do you start with '59 Huet and then live with mortal wine?
Wasn't quite sure what to make of this. Quite of a disconnect between nose and palate: the nose is all tertiary, borderline corked (damp mushrooms,...) yet the palate was very lovely and typical huet. Nose = 80, Palate = 95. Strange...
