Community Tasting Notes (6) Median Score: 90 points

  • I love older wines, but this one was well past its prime. Opened (pristine cork indicating that it had been well cellared) and poured into a glass 45 minutes before the first consumption. Little development over the next 45 minutes (2 glasses) and (after recorking) no change 6 hours later. Fading even further on the 2nd night, with little bouquet and some interesting flavours mid-palate. No acidity or finish (disappeared as soon as it was drunk), but leaving the mouth very dry (presumably from lingering tanins, although this isn't immediately obvious). Surely 2 - 4 years past its peak and, whilst not unpleasant, certainly not recommended. Don't be tempted to decant it or keep it.

  • Tannins have faded leaving a lovely medium weight drop of wine. Drinking well now but no hurry

  • This is just starting to open up nicely. 6 hours after double decanting, lovely bouquet of prunes and leather, silky fruit on the palate, nice balance of fruit and acid, some sweetness from the alcohol (12.5%), long finish, not a trace of brett. There is still considerable tannin to coat one's cheeks, but not enough to detract from the pleasure. 16 years old and just starting to come into form, I believe this wine has at least another 5 years to hit its peak and should last another 15. Impressive, old school, great QPR if one can wait.

  • Dissapointing. Nasty farmyard aromas, animal. Tannic and acidic. Went down the drain... I was warned by the seller.
