Red
Served blind, slow oxed for 2 hour, most guessed 90s Rhone, beautiful wine, in a lovely spot
Red
Served blind, slow oxed for 2 hour, still dark, lots of funk upon opening, savoury, earth, feral, blows off, most guessing 80s & 90s, good wine but not as good as the 55 drank few days ago
Red
Stunning, alive, beautiful, such a pleasure, unbelievable for its age, served blind, no one guessed 55
Red
1985 Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
A sleeper of a Lynch, this always impresses with its depth, length & class
Red
1989 Château Palmer Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
Always a stunner, perfection of balance & class, this really needed time to drink & contemplate as we rushed this

When opened v stinky & flat but after 3 hours really blossomed to reveal a bold, dense, structured Burg, excellent
Red
1985 Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir (view label images)
Absolutely beautiful, fresh strawberries & savoury, everything you wish for in a mature Burg
Red
Classic old Bordeaux, v similar to the 85 D’Issan drunk before this, lovely
Red
Young even after a 3 hr slow oxed, supremely elegant with substantial body but I would think it still needs a few more years
Red
1985 Château d'Issan Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
Lovely after the funk blew off, elegant mature Margaux that still retained its fruits & body
Red
Looking forward to re try this beauty, paired with dry aged rib eyes, medium red, expressive nose, cherries, mushrooms, soft tannins, sweet finish & finesse, will get better
Red
Big rich powerhouse of a Cdp, good in a tarty way ie this isn’t elegant, sweet & full bodied

Decanted for 3 hours, kirsch, black fruits, rich but balanced & agreeable tannins, make sure you drink this cooler at 13-14 degrees

Slow oxed for 2 hours, lovely stunning aromas of red fruits, distinct candy floss, spices, herbs, soil, palate had a zen like precision, grand vin, long & full of depth, elegance personified, for those who like their Burgs with more fruits this is drinking well, wait few more years if you want more secondary savoury elements, kept getting better & more complex as night progressed, oh my the nose was just so good always evolving & revealing something new, the reason why we drink Burgs!

Hungarian white wine from Furmint grapes, curious to see how it drinks, light coloured, tight nose, good medium bodied weight, drinks like a Sauvignon Blanc, quaffable white
Red
V Bordeaux like on the nose, lovely but new world on the palate but I liked this
Red
Rich, powerful, complex, long, edges bit rough so still needs to roundup, slow oxed for 4 hours which wasn’t enough so best to decant this 3-4 hours

Popped & decanted, stupendous nose that kept evolving, full on cherries, last sip had a delicious funk nose, so drinkable at this age, beautiful soft tannins, one the best VT’s I’ve drunk, can only get better with age
