Community Tasting Notes 81

    April 17, 2022 - Nose is dominated by pepper and woody spice, with a touch of red currant and savory Asian sauce notes.
    On the palate, it is medium body, nicely integrated with bright acidity and a decent finish. The wine is better on the palate than the nose. It’s probably in its prime and will drink well for 5-10 years but I don’t see this getting much better.

    January 30, 2022 - 醒酒一个半小时,闻香轻微酱味,动物皮毛,肉味,人参的香气,黑李子的果香,入口酸度中高,单宁细腻,酒液咸鲜,矿物感,石墨气息,人参,烤面包的味道,后段植物微苦,余味木质香气。一支充分陈年,处在适饮期后期的酒,植物气息和橡木桶主导,已经没有太活跃的果香,口感略有些咸苦,缺少愉悦感,但有着复杂的香气,体现的是老酒的另一种魅力。

    October 25, 2021 - A private dinner (Restaurant d'Oude Schuur, Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium): Classic Lafite nose, fragrant, mature but fresh, spices and blackcurrants, flowers and oyster shell; slender and gentle but lively palate, lovely freshness and firm tannic grip; very good resonance and length.
