1980 Warre

Post by LGTrotter » 20:02 Sat 20 Aug 2016

Another one of these. Still very good, better on the second evening, having uncoiled itself a little more. A very taut wine with lots of acidity and sloes, but it finishes with an excess sweetness, like honey. Very dark in colour and it has a darkness to the palate, almost brutal, but I do not think it coarse. This will age very well and I think it will improve, hopefully allowing the fruit to peek through a bit more, for there is plenty there. A packed and dense wine. About 92 points for me, but I would not quibble about a couple more points. This wine does not seem to have aged at all in the time I have been drinking it (about 10 years).
