Wine tasting at Paul B's place (Cambridge, UK): Tasted double blind. Oh wow, what a nose! Fantastic barnyard and cassis, I could sniff this all night long! The palate however was losing it, still had good tannins, but the fruit is fading. Still a treat and wonderful to smell and taste!
Drank at a GL tasting in Oslo 29/1-15, 27 vintages of GL.
Good bottle, fill in neck. Ruby red color, classic GL nose, fruit is quite flat, moderate tannins and nice acidity. Lacks vigor and is quite one dimensional, confirms the difficulties of the seventies.
