    June 1, 2019 - Cheval Blanc Vertical ‘Chez Elke’ (Hotel Hohenzollern, Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler): Corked - but the wine behind shows the richness of this wine...

    What a shame

    March 26, 2019 - An Evening of Vinous Merriment and Majesty Among Friends (Craft, New York): Classic right bank profile with dark fruit but not heavy at all. A more evolved nose compared to the '52 and '53 tasted alongside. Still firmly tannic.

    August 16, 2018 - Great Wine Seminar. British bottled. Unbelievably dark. Dull.

    December 24, 2017 - English bottled by Hankey Bannister. Tatty label and low-mid shoulder, a cheapish, risky auction purchase. I opened this at noon, cork came out in 2 pieces. Distinctly oxidised nose. Smelt well gone. Six hours later not much change, too old. A taste, maderised but there is some fruit here nonetheless. However not good enough to drink with dinner so I opened something else. At 11 hours after opening, still a strong whiff of oxidation on the nose but there is some fruit. To taste now, this is drinkable and there is some fruit, certainly improved on earlier but a bit dried out and lots of oxidative raisin notes. Tastes better than it smells. This would have been a big wine. I put the rest in some small bottles I had and have put them in the fridge. Will taste again tomorrow but with low expectations. On the second day the oxidised notes had gone altogether. This needed nearly 24 hours of slow oxidation to bring it to peak condition. Not a profound drinking experience but I was able to enjoy the bottle.
