1994 Tesco

Post by jdaw1 » 12:58 Sat 25 Dec 2010

1994 Tesco (Symington), decanting having started at 12:45, so now at D + 10 minutes. There were a pair of these, labelled flowers and stars, this being flowers. 60% opaque, red. Lots of dried plum, medium sweetness, medium weight. Will improve with a few hours.

Costing €16 at the Epicerie Anglaise, 6 boulevard Magenta.

At D + 32 hours, there’s lot of peppery heat, which quickly fades to much lighter sweet red fruits including grape. Lacking complexity and heaviness, but still very drinkable. Drink on day of opening.
