1996 GPL is just about to reach its drinking window. so I thought to give its second wine a try and bought two bottles, but this is gone. if you have bottles, pnp, don't decant, I can definitely not recommend this wine, nose of almost rotten black currants and raisins. poured away.
Found this nice bottle of mature bordeaux at a very reasonable cost. Still a fairly youthful garnet colour. Mid bodied, nicely balanced with decent acidity balancing smooth tannins. Blackcurrant aromas; on the palate the fruit is less defined and the secondary flavours are a bit muted but the overall package is a good demonstration of why we wait for Bordeaux reds to age.
