Community Tasting Notes 7

  • Chateau du Fey 1994 wrote:

    October 20, 2019 - A bit pruney but to be expected from a wine of this age. Still had good fruit and was fun to try. Better than the 64 Rioja we had a couple months ago, which was clearly over the hill.

    January 16, 2018 - Best bottle yet from a case acquired at auction couple of years ago. And note this is actually the crianza wine! Resolved tannin but glowing orange rim, warm nose with spice and smooth red fruit in the mouth. Fell off after an hour in decanter but a real treat.

    November 30, 2017 - Most smokin bottle yet. Complex, soft, seductive.
