Very dense, balanced and silky wine , madeira port wine, dried plums, smoky bacon, dried sweet red fruits - long finish - with 15% too heavy for my liking - lacks therefore a bit elegance - however a special wine which improved over the 2nd in the btl! Next one in 5 yrs+

Decanted for 2 hrs and was better the 2nd day in the bottle — very burg sharp style - St Aubin or so. Super tight and tense, good acidity and fruit but still too harsh for me. Need to wait another 1-2 yrs to compare

Decanted for 4 hrs and peaked after 7 or so….beautiful fruit, long finish and great balance. Top Syrah - still in his enjoyable „youngster“ phase can hold much longer. No signs of age yet

Totally off any charts - sherry, hazelnut, cream and massive long finish - not an easy drinking wine but with cheese, old cheese an amazing combination!
A btl for experts shared over a night! Probably never dies!

I think its too old - prime is gone, lacking fruit and minerality - no freshness left.

Cook up :-)
