brick red revealling its age of 20+ years. Close at the opening, with very limited perfumes and taste, basically earth. Slowly opens in the dacanter and shows a clear hint of liquorice and then step by step a background of coffee and graphite. The day after its classic bordeaux nature is more evident but only one sip is left. Typical and elegant. At LT in a lonely evening with a superb T bone steak from eat's
1993 Horizontal - The Papies at year 20! (The Papies, Elizabeth St, London): Good colour, still dense core but the rim is bricking and shows its age. The nose is ever so classical, open, delicate and full on secondary. Light leather, earthy , tobacco and with still a decent amount of dark fruits. Light floral, herby side too. On the palate the wine shows its age but still very nice and with presence. Light fruit, almost a burgundian feel at times, well evolved and round. Not dry or with hash edges just a beautifully well aged beauty. Among the best reds we have come across for 1993. 94 and well deserved
