Je ne comprends pas les notes....Après une belle attaque, le vin me semble dominé par l'alcool, souffrant d'un manque de matière. 85 pts Le lendemain, l'équilibre est beaucoup mieux. Je sais que les vintage ont besoin de beaucoup d'aération, mais j'ignorais que c'était le cas pour un tawny....88 pts
Pretty good. In the spirit of chocolate-covered cherries or raisinets. Very prune-y. Somewhat dense and unresolved. For me, this is clearly inferior to the Taylor 20yo. I'm not sure that 40yo tawnies are better than 30yo tawnies or that 30yo tawnies are better than 20yo tawnies, but I'm pretty sure that 20yo tawnies are better than 10yo tawnies.

(NV Taylor's Ten Year Old Tawny) Current release. A nice tawny, brick red hue. Good fruit on the nose for a tawny, too. The palate has a surprisingly full presence, it is almost a little creamy. Certainly it has a fuller style than many wines of a similar style shown here. A good substance, with lovely firm fruit, tannin and grip. Lots of impact. This has a punchy style. I like it.
(NV Taylor's Ten Year Old Tawny Port) Current release. A beautiful colour, at first seeming to be pale golden brown, but then showing warmer tones of caramel and red. Aromas of chocolate-coated nuts and raisins on the nose. Rich and balanced on the palate, which has warming alcohol and spicy, zippy acidity. More caramel and nut character, with a somewhat woody edge. Quite textured, with a velvety nuance.
