Bottle was in perfect condition. The cork was still intact. Color was brownish indicating its age. Has a little funk to the nose, and tastes like strawberries. The finish is very short. Probably past is prime by several years. Drank over a few hours. Don't let it get too much air and drink pretty quickly. It was awful by almost the third hour.
Over its prime, a bit of spice left, rich nose but not too much flavour left on the palate. Nice wine, not difficult to drink, but we waited way too long. C'est la vie. It was a chance to test out a Sauce Hussarde on the regulation country chicken of Sunday Lunch. Sauce Hussarde ? Ah, I didn't know about it either, till I made it. Yummmm.
