2003 Offley LBV

Post by Axel P » 10:17 Fri 15 Feb 2008

That was a real surprise. Bought it at a duty free store. The bottle is pitchdark and sealed with a cork (!), this wine had a lot in common with a weak VP: the acohol, the acidity a little less fruitiness and not so many tannins.

Overall: a very nice LBV which should be put away for 10 years.

Anyone knows if Offley is producing traditional LBVs only?
