1980 Cockburn LBV

Post by jdaw1 » 09:49 Fri 23 May 2008

Decanter #5: slightly paler than #4, the Taylor. For the nose I wrote “a lot of alcohol some bottle stink†, and the taste was just “acidic and sour and damaged†. Not liked at all.

Mischievous of our host to slip in an LBV!

Filtered style of LBV, bottled in 1985. Red in colour, turning pale orange on the rim. Sweet redcurrants on the nose, livened up with a touch of cloves. Sweet and caressing entry with a gentle collection of mature flavours and just the right amount of acidity to give a great structure. Huge length, with a massive range of flavours and complexity. A very good wine. 6/6 or 91/100.
