Community Tasting Note

  • Margaux Bro Likes this wine: 96 points

    April 24, 2021 - Brought to a tasting menu dinner, and paired with duck and lamb courses. Stood upright for 3 days prior to serving, but this was still packed with sediment. Popped at the beginning of the meal and decided not to decant, because the first taste was impeccable. Let it slow ox in the bottle for about an hour before consuming with the food pairing. This bottle was in a truly perfect spot, and was a much lighter wine than I expected (not surprising given the 13.5% abv). Anyway, I highly recommend drinking now. I’m going to be on a mission to seek out additional bottles of this vintage.
