1999 Warre LBV (unfiltered)

Post by Andy Velebil » 02:49 Thu 10 Jan 2008

Unfiltered and bottled in 2003

A very dark ruby color. The nose is a typical young LBV showing plums and blackberries. The nose isn't very powerful and shows a bit on the soft side. The palate is a bit thinner than it's 1995 counterpart with soft tannins, good balance, some smoke, mahogany, a touch of liquorice, and mocha. The finish is medium in length and shows a very small amount of unintegrated alcohol, which should integrate in the next couple of years. Overall, this is a little weaker than the 1995 but still a good LBV. I think a few more years in the cellar will do it good, but I don't think this one will hold up as long, or be as good as the '95. 87-88 points
