Community Tasting Note

  • lemaitre Likes this wine: 98 points

    October 22, 2015 - Traditional Barolo at its best. Absolutely outstanding. Acidity, incredible silky tannins and terrific sweetness of red fruits is merging into breathtaking harmony. Had this wine 7 or 8 times over the last two years and it was each time an unforgettable moment. 98+
    Could easily compete against a great Musigny!

Very intriguing as we have several bottles we have yet to sip thinking too young. You obviously thinking she is singing in full colours at the moment... Yes, it would be interesting to know if you decanted or let it simply breathe in the bottle for however long?
