SPA 10Y. 30% opaque. Nose slightly burnt, with red fruit. To taste boring: dry start, mid-to-light weight. Unremarkable.

From Franprix. Deep orange with a gold rim, 30% opaque. Over-ripe oranges on the nose, attractive but spoiled by the sharp heated-plastic overtone. Sweet entry, golden syrup then a sharp and harsh acidity that is dominated by plastic strawberries. Burnt brown sugar aftertaste, then a bitter cocnut finish. Unattractive. 66/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
