Provenance - the first of two bottles purchased at Schipol Airport in September 1997; cellared by me since.

By coincidence, I’m taxiing to depart Schipol as I read this!

Opened and decanted last night at 1800. Level was base of neck. Nose was OK and dregs tasted fine...

PhilW - will forward some photos.

CkC91. Drowned in vinegar acidity. George: “remarkably undrinkable”.

Breathtakingly bad bottle. A shame.

Very light colour. Acetone nose, which didn't clear with time.
Palate slightly better than nose, but not much. Very acidic.

Suspect my 2nd bottle won't be any better. To be opened soon.
