Bottled 2016, half bottle with "proper" driven cork. A gift from one of the sommeliers at the Rex Whistler restaurant at Tate Britain, but appears to be currently retailing around £20 for a 75cl bottle.

Pleasant nose, with good body and evident tannin. Slightly spirity finish, but overall not bad for an LBV. 7+/10.

How long did you decant this one? Or did you pop and pour?

Popped & poured.

Drunk over space of a week. Vacuvin-ed in between. Didn't notice any particular develop during this period.

Had a taste of this yesterday - think it needs a few more years.
