Better with rosted Lamm than with cheese. Opened 2 Bottles at the same time. One was much better than the other which confirms the fact that: "Il n'y a pas du bon vin, Il n'y a qu'une bonne bouteille."
Still young and slightly disjointed right now. There's lots of good fruit but it seems hidden behind a wall of tannins. Red fruit, spices, bacon, licorice, and mint. Lacks punch on the palate but has a nice subtle mouthfeel. I'm optimistic that this is going to turn into a nice wine, but this depends on the status of the fruit once the tannins soften. I really like the style of this wine. Definitely recommend waiting a couple of years.
1 hour decant, another 3 hours to finish the bottle.
Impressive cherry/plum nose; dark red colour, rims are not fading yet. Initially, very dense, also high but pleasant acidity. On the palate, even more cherries, a bit of oak in addition with hints of rubber. Kept building up during all times. Long finish.
Had the 2003 a few weeks back, which was more balanced and complex, despite the extraordinary summer.
