  • More interesting than good, but perhaps what should be expected for a 60 year old bottle of uncertain provenance. A bit nutty, with better aroma than taste.

  • A Ledbury lunch: Beautiful deep amber. Barley sugar on the nose. Far drier on the palate. This bottle has pretty much consumed its sugar. Amontillado without the depth or intensity. A little on the slide it if not expecting sweetness there's interest here. A wine to sip and contemplate. ***

  • An absolutely thrilling wine. Layers of tropical fruit and dried apricots, honey, caramel and more mature burnished and savoury elements all combining seamlessly on a medium weight frame. There's a sense of amazing purity and freshness to the flavours, a faint high toned volatile topnote that adds complexity rather than detracting from the wine, and incredible persistence. A real treat, thanks Michael.

  • Julia's 50th (Old Rectory): A half bottle. Excellent fill and cork. Full lead capsule. Lovely colour, medium dark gold, but not oxidised. Expressive nose of sweetness, honey & mead. Taste very similar, rounded, sweet but not cloying, persistent, long, some caramel. In superb condition after 50 years, no sign of decline. Might have scored higher if it had not been paired with Yquem '01.
