Whilst the lagar samples of the '14 may have looked really good, negative traits might easily have surfaced over the subsequent months..
Very true. I'm sure it is difficult to get a true impression of a VP from freshly bottled juice, so I have no doubt that things can change over that first year in bottle. It may not have been the original reason for delaying declaration for 18-30 months, but I'm sure it proves useful now that it is required standard practice.
