Quite nose, slight floral notes. Wonderful complex palate of pear and nuttiness. Medium length finish. Our host was concerned the wine would no longer be good; this is probably mature, but still has life.
Simply delicious. Starting to honey. I think this has years left if you like the way these age. Excellent balance, a tad short on the finsih. Next bottle I'll decant for a short time to blow off a slight initial funk.
Enjoyed with smoked salmon-based appetizer before an '82 Cos with the venison main course.
