    April 23, 2017 - streng, aber kraftvoll und noch fruchtig, das Alter kein Problem, vielleicht ein schlechtes Jahr, aber hier in Ordnung

    September 13, 2008 - Was a bit worried since the cork was falling into the bottle when I tried to clan the mouldy top. Decanted the wine: Still an impressive dark colour for 27 year old wine, brick edges. A bit dusty to start with, but nice mushroomy, forest floor flavours in nose after 10 minutes. Soft texture with fair amount of acidity. Silky, nice tannins. Won't improve much with ageing but an all pleasing experience for a 1981. Used some for my tomato Risotte and it just tastes faboulous with it !
