1977 Fonseca

Post by Axel P » 19:55 Thu 31 Mar 2011

Split from thread created for FG vertical by jdaw1.

Opened a bottle at the Pro Wein eve to lean over to the Fonseca tasting: Full red color, expected at this age. Nose with lots of eucalyptus and minty notes, some fruit still in the background. Full palate, already integrated, but not revealing everything it will be offering in about 10 years of time. Mint, Toffee. Long, solid aftertaste. Very nice. 17,5

Opened in comparison with a SWC 77, which showed off much younger.
