Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L

“Huge jump from 1998 on the nose. Big, smoky cloud with lots of raw meat character. Very fat and enveloping, like a great big fat flapping lady's embrace . . . . Almost evanescent. Lots of raw meat and some violets. Quite marked acidity. Still very, very fine tannins on the finish. Exotic. The smell of an old leather handbag/purse. Very, very long. Bouquet kept opening out in the glass. Edge of burnt sugar. Much more delicate than you might think.” JancisRobinson.com, Oct 5 2005 (Tasted Mar 11 2004)
Provenance: The Aquamarine Cellar
Notes: Very top shoulder, lightly corroded, nicked capsule, damp stained, lightly mold stained, lightly wrinkled, lightly faded label.
