  • Second sip of our Full Moon Bordeaux Blend BBQ. Life sucks 😎.

    Last time we sipped this wine was in 2012 with a good friend. Memories flooding back...

    Dark, syrupy yellow. Where is the bread and knife to spread the butter? Aromas of honey, petrol and squealing tires almost reminiscent of a Sauternes. Smooth, subtle, silky honey and butter on the palate. Fun.
    A young, new sipper loved it. Interesting as usually too "sophisticated" for such people. Wonders never cease and make sipping wine with different sorts of people that much more interesting.

  • 16th of 24, perfect level and cork, previous notes over 15 years very good to fine - light gold, viscous, deeper than previous bottles; nose very lanolin, some honeysuckle and burned rubber, little fruit; medium weight silky, acid cut which used to be almost seering, trace of gooseberry, long but lacking fruit and too angular for pleasure seekers, mature but changing, possibly not for the better. Technically fine (17.5/20), but lower on pleasure!

  • Super nose which still took 2 hours to develop, amazing longevity here! Marzipan, some candied/cooked orange peel and burnt rubber. Lovely precision on the palate with a saline element and a crystalline acidity. Very good lenght carried by the acidity. No tiredness or oxidization at all!

  • Mid gold, hints of brown and green. Some grassiness, some flowers, some honey. Lovely rich mouth feel. Plenty of honey, beeswax, almonds, some light gooseberry,. Long. Someone said custard powder and rhubarb. Others noted the parallels with old white burgundies. Lovely wine. This bottle was good.

  • Decanted and drunk. Light gold. Honey. Beeswax. Lemon. Lovely texture too, solid body. Hazelnuts. Swirls and changes. Lovely complexity. Very long. And then a glass left for 24 hours in the decanter. Quite amazing. This was lighter in colour and fresher, cleaner fruit. Not quite sure how that happened. Seems like plenty of life left.
