Rare Wine Dinners: Bordeaux 1926-1975 (Bentley Restaurant, private dining room): Wow. What a start to this tasting. Aromas exploding from the glass. Violets, florals, rose. Mushrooms. Brioche. The palate is so rich. Still has freshness, with such a long and elegant finish. Amazing wine! The oxidative notes are harmoniously blended in with the other flavours. After some time, earthy notes lead to caramel, honey and toast. The wine creates a wonderful salivation when in the mouth. The finish lingers longer than 1 minute. Terrific bottle indeed.
DP 64, 66, 71 and Oeno 66: A gorgeous quartet of DP. Started of with 64 and 66 originals. Both were good, but the 66 was fantastic. Interestingly, this parcel of 66 has shown very golden and mature looking, but has drunk insanely well. The 66 Oeno is a terrific champagne, but in the company of these originals it was hard for it to shine. However it really did open up, and is among my favorite Oeno's. Our final DP was a 71 original, and this was simply smoking. The best of the night, and the best 71 I've ever had.
