This was a very good red with great flavour. Great oak tones and a lovely colour. Recommended. Apparently this was a great vintage year for Bordeaux.

V-day Dinner at ROSL 4

This wine we had for with our Valentine’s day menu. It was superb. A wine this old needs to be decanted and left to breath, but afterwards it is an experience. The bouquet was amazing and full, whilst the flavours were subtle (hints of leathery smokiness). If you can find it have some!
