Community Tasting Notes 6

    November 24, 2015 - A classic aged Bordeaux. I am consistently surprised at how even middle of the road Bordeaux, especially prior to the more inform and heavy Parker style, age so well. Other wines at similar price points ($23 at purchase!) may have been good, but very few are terrific 25 years later. My notes similar to others: tobacco, leather, graphite both in the nose and mouth. While certainly not improving with further age, still drinking really well. Love old Bordeaux!

    October 25, 2015 - Egentlig en av mine første modne Bordeaux viner. Spennende erfaring! Drukket til okse høyrygg Souse vide 72t med okseglaze, potetpuré og ovnsbakte rotgrønnsaker.
    Vanskelig å få ut korken. Endte opp hel, men nedi flasken. Mursteinsrød med lys kant. Litt uklar/grumsete men flasken hadde ligget. (Hadde glemt å sette den opp i forkant) Dobbeltdekantert. 1,5 timer på karaffel. Lukter kraftig blyantkvess og lær, solbær og litt pipetobakk. Følger opp med samme aromaer i munnen. Ikke den mest komplekse vinen men fint balansert. Moderat syre og avslepene taniner. Virker veldig moden. Kun et hint av buljong. Utvikler seg lite utover kvelden. Bør nok drikkes innen noen få år, men bra flaske. 90p

    September 26, 2015 - Dekantert 1,5 time. Blyantkvess, solbær og sedertre. Snille tanniner og kropp. Litt mer utviklet enn forventet. IN fyllnivå.

    March 14, 2015 - Pencil shaves, pipe tobacco, bonfire; linear and elegant in the mouth, wonderful balance, old school claret.

    October 16, 2006 - The first bottle we've had. Classic bordeaux nose..unmistakable lead pencil, cassis. Quite accessible on the mouth, tannins very smooth, fruit very evident. Medium body, not a big wine, but very well balanced. Drinking well now...will last, but don't really see many gains in coming years vs. now.
