1981 Warre LBV

Post by benread » 20:26 Wed 08 Nov 2017

Drunk 7th November 2017. Utterly fabulous. I’d say this is my sweet spot for maturity. Still plenty of body and fruit but elegantly so. Just becoming possible to see through a glass.

I’d speculate that on 10 years time AHB might find this to his style.

I think perhaps a Warre LBV vertical might be a good tasting theme. Anyone interested?

That would be great fun. I'm in. Have no Warre LBV that I know of though...

Really like this idea but again don't have 'old' LBV thus would need to adopt

I used the one old Warre LBV (‘74 which was fabulous) at a previous tasting, so the oldest I could offer would be the 2003 [which was only last years offering]. From a very small amount of experience with these lovely ports, it would be a great tasting that I would love to go to, but would probably need to adopt too.
