1998 Burmester LBV (unfiltered)

Post by RonnieRoots » 22:45 Sun 02 Sep 2007

Smells of plums and cherries, and posesses some good flavours of dark fruit, mint and chocolate. Lacks structure to guarantee further ageing, and finishes rather hot. Drink now. 85 points at this stage.
Hotness has blown off after two days, and it's a nice harmonious drinker. Elegent and medium bodied. Nice for drinking now, or in the near future. 87 points.

Really? That's a pity. I haven't bought the newer vintages, but I saw on Cellartracker that I paid 12.50 each for these.
