Another corked bottle from the same case.
People don't know how to properly store wine...

garnet. Nose was shy, initially not giving much, with swirling and airing some licorice, lead pencil. Taste had some acid, black fruits. Clearly in a closed phase, let it rest 3-5 years.

If you had argued that there was bottle variation I may have hedged, but over 35+ years of wine tasting I have encountered closed "dumb" phase in many areas' wines and many bottles. Given what I tasted from this bottle in the past, I stand by my review.

White
2013 Y de Yquem Bordeaux Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Pale yellow. Very Sauvignon blanc in nature, only with aging/airing does the Semillon come out. Nose of vanilla, orange peel, cream, citrus. Mouth was smooth, medium weight, lip smacking.

White - Sweet/Dessert
1993 Château Pajzos Tokaji Esszencia Furmint Blend, Furmint

Dark brown. Nose of molasses, honey, lemon rind. Taste mouth coating-literally!-richest of the rich, very sweet, very long lasting. Whaps you upside the head with a 2x4, subtlety be damned.

White - Sparkling
1996 Moët & Chandon Champagne Cuvée Dom Pérignon Champagne Blend

Pale gold. Very fine bubbles. Nose was acidic, citric. Taste was the same. Seems very young-let age a few years at least. But still good.
  • Harry Cantrell commented:

    1/24/13, 2:09 PM - 1996 was a high acid vintage and a lot of the higher end Champagne will age a long time. Try the 96 Veuve Clicquot which outshone the 96 Dom at this tasting/Dinner.
