tasted both from a 750 and a magnum. Both displayed excellent balance, but the mid-palate is disappearing. Nice mineral notes, and certainly interesting to be able to taste at this age. No significant difference between the 750 and the magnum. The 2004 Belle Cote was considerably more vibrant, from a 750. Will taste the magnum fairly soon.
w tuna steaks an artichokes. Not good combination but believe this lost its oomph. Great nose and color upon opening, but only decent thereafter. Really expected something great after 10 yrs. this was well kept since buying thru the list. Too bad
A bad bottle. cloudy and I thought it might just have been lees, since i could still taste nice chard, but two other drinkers detected nail polish and ended up pouring down the sink. the first one was very nice. Making me wonder if i should attempt aging these past 5 years.
