1997 Rozès

Post by jdaw1 » 13:03 Sun 13 Sep 2009

Derek in Paris, chez Julian: day 2, Saturday 12th September 2009.

First we opened:We had a stroll, to see the Eiffel tower, during which we bought a 1997 Rozès, then the Frenchman arrived so Derek decided that we needed to open two more 1977s.The Frenchman left after about two hours.

1997 Rozès: avoid. About €25 from Nicolas.

The nose was appallingly tanky, perhaps even like a lagare. This did not fade with time. Derek smelt meat, with which I partly agreed. To taste Derek thought raw meat.

Bottle barely drunk and assigned to cooking. Avoid.
