Tasted On 10/16/2010Drink Dates 2010-2012
Amazing wine - I picked this up directly from the domaine after a tour. The bottle hadn't moved from the cellar since it was placed there. They said it was ready to drink (which is why they had this wine for sale) so I let it rest in my wine refrigerator for a month then popped it open. On the nose there was some hints of raspberry, strawberry, truffle, rose petals and dusty earth. The wine looked slightly murky, nice rim variation, garnet color, couldn't tell the wine was 39 years old. I would have guessed 15-20 years max. The wine still tasted young with medium minus tannins, medium alcohol, medium acid and a medium plus finish. Ready to drink now.
