Pop and pour basis, no formal notes but made for very pleasant drinking - if this is CSD's one remaining bottle referred to here, i'd be suprised if it did not far exceed those expectations.

Was clearly young, but nevertheless open and guesses round the table included some of the real heavyweights from 94s, 97s and 00s - so at £165ib for a footlocker, not too shabby!

CSD’s V95. 90% opaque. To taste lots of heat, lots of plum and prune fruit, and good acidity.

Deep purple. Bit of heat on the nose, slightly astringent in the mouth, with lots of good fruit hidden underneath. Needs time to open up.
