rating 18/20
Pretty dark garnet, but also showing a lot of ripe tones at the edge. Warm, hot bouquet, candied fruits, raisins, traces of honey (like a Lafleur!), mint tones, lemon peel in the dry-sweet nose. The palate begins creamy, lush with plump tannins on the outside, but then you can feel a fine, robust dryness on the inside of the tannins. Will probably have reached its peak of pleasure now. (18/20). 10: Ginger notes, coconut, red fruits, gianduja chocolate notes, cedar and cold chocolate, a hint of overripe notes of delicately raisined Merlot. Thick, rich, velvety and pleasing on the palate. Was the best impression of a wine so far, which logically costs much more, i.e. possible appellation alternatives. The best impression of this wine so far: 19/20! Was it the Gabriel Gold glass? 11: Ripening burgundy, distinctly orange tint towards the edge. Full sweet bouquet, Colheita port notes, roasted coffee, musk notes, showing the typical 1982 vulgarity, freshly tanned leather.

(18/20). 12: We served the wine in Bussumschen Wijnkopery (Holland) straight from the bottle without decanting. Medium dark wine red. The bouquet begins unconventionally. I poured the wine over several times because I suspected a reduction and it was. It started out fuchsia with tones of sweaty red smear cheese, then, when the wine recovered, came milk chocolate, red plums, Napolitain biscuits, increased and became more and more Burgundy and also sweeter. Soft on the palate, velvety with nice fullness, enough fat in the extract, which indicates a medium concentration. Still showed a fair amount of astringency from residual tannins.
