Deep centre, pale orange rim. Very similar appearance to the NN ’64 drunk alongside this bottle. Dusty nose with tones of lemon juice and almond paste mixed in. Leather in the mouth with lots of liquorice and aniseed and a lovely complexity developing if you just hold the wine on your tongue for a while. The aftertaste takes a while to arrive but eventually delivers a surge of burnt sugar and a long length of spicy chocolates. A very mature wine with lots of tertiary flavours. Holding well. 93/100. Drunk 20-Aug-06. Double decanted for 24 hours.
