Community Tasting Notes 3

    June 9, 2019 - 60-års dag og blinsmaking: Ca 1,3 cm ullage. Selv om det er mye teriære aromaer her, finnes det også noe mørk frukt, sursøt og fingradert, bra kompleksitet, men blir litt tynn i frukten. Etter 1 time i glasset er det ikke noe særlig nedgang. Folk var unisone på at dette var Bordeaux.

    June 12, 2012 - The final wine of our tasting of 5 older Burgundies. Tons of terroir here with an impeccable balance. While there is very good purity and complexity on the palate, the finish was a bit short suggesting that the wine may be in its waning years, but immensely enjoyable now.

    March 5, 2007 - Dinner with Black at Bern's. Fantastic. Poured out of magnum. Ethereal nose. Gorgeous fruit. Still young.
