Fonseca 2001 LBV

Post by jdaw1 » 16:12 Fri 09 May 2008

Fonseca 2001 LBV, unfiltered, bottled 2007. Decanted 8am no sediment. Dark red colour—quite excellent really—and birightly clear. Jeff claimed that it has a “Bin 27 nose†, reminding us of Oscar:
  • Cecily: Do you suggest Miss Fairfax, that I entrapped Ernest into an engagement? How dare you? This is no time for wearing the shallow mask of manners. When I see a spade I call it a spade.
    Gwendolen: I am glad to say that I have never seen a spade. It is obvious that our social spheres have been widely different.
To taste cloying and rough. JG: “Really sucks†. JG: “Bin 27 has more flavour†.

Hated.
