Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 91 points

  • second night - the extra time in the bottle did a lot for this wine -- adding definition, clarity, and intensity of the minerals and the fruit. Nicely balanced at this point. Poured about a third of the bottle into a split to work on tomorrow night. Interesting experiment. Oxidized notes are essentially gone on day 2.

  • Following several threads on the Squires board about oxidation among 1995 White Burgs that then opened to become very full and rich, I decided to open this bottle - a single - to see if the phenomenon was present in this case. On opening, the wine did show some measure of oxidation. Within a short time, the dominant tones were of slate, crushed shells, wet gravel, and light citrus. I had a couple of small glasses over the course of an hour, and didn't notice much change, but corked the bottle and put it back in the fridge so I can taste it over the next day or so.
