Community Tasting Notes 6

    February 2, 2020 - Elegant, refined, supple and silky, the patina of age comes with floral scents, tobacco, cigar box, cherry pipe tobacco, truffle and coffee notes. As good as the nose is, the sensual nature of the wine on the palate is even better!

    July 19, 2019 - 1959, Château Figeac, Saint-Emilion. Kräftiges Rubin, deutliche Reifetöne. Feinduftige Nase, wirkt reif, warm mit Aromen von Rosinen, erinnert im Duft fast schon an einen Wein aus der Süd-Rhone, zeigt auch würzige und krautige Noten, dazu etwas dunkle Frucht, Tabak, Zedern, sehr gute Komplexität. Im Gaumen dicht, auch hier mit einer satten, sehr reif anmutenden Frucht, zeigt noch immer leicht Gerbstoff, die eher tiefe Säure ist gut eingebunden, der Wein wirkt im Kontext seines Jahrgangs erstaunlich kompakt und dicht, aromatisch aber auch etwas gar warm und exotisch. Endet ausgesprochen lang, einen Tick hitzig. Ein Erlebnis. Trinken. 18 vvPunkte (91/100) vvWine.ch

    October 14, 2017 - Kind of reminds me of the 1945 Montrose, lots of geranium and super dominated by that, lots of power in the palate and a good wine, but not a lot of joy in drinking it

    March 24, 2017 - Surprisingly youthful, served double blind, I thought it was 20 years younger. With the silky patina that can only come from age, the wine continues offering earthy red berries, tobacco, herbs and a hint of citrus. What a nice, unexpected treat!
