1977 Warre

Post by DRT » 22:36 Sat 13 Mar 2010

Served blind at this off-line at the Crusting Pipe, London, on 9th March 2010.

The ports: Wines marked "*" were purchase on the night at TCP due to a world record consumption of 1 bottle each in less than 2 hours, which included dinner :roll:

Notes left at the table.

From memory- this one I remember started off well but a strange bitterness took over after a couple of seconds. Disappointing.

This got a bit better over time, but I was rather disappointed by this showing. A bit thin and dirty on the nose, with not much structure or acid in the mouth, and finishing a bit harsh (the finish did improve a bit in time). Not bad, per se, but really not what I would have expected from a 77 Warre. 83
