2011 Burmester LBV

Post by Tarne » 21:02 Sat 10 Dec 2016

A dense substantial wine, in no way delicate and with little fruit showing.

Initially medium heat on the attack, a dominant cocoa taste tending towards mild bitterness on the palate and a finish that was too earthy, it didn't linger pleasantly.

By the second and third day the mild heat had died away and the raw cocoa taste changed to a smoother chocolate flavour similar to that of baking chocolate. In addition, although I couldn't sense the promised tropical fruits black fruits became more apparent.

The only time I would drink this again would be if I was offered Death By Chocolate for pudding for which some may think it an ideal accompaniment.
