1966 Warre

Hint of garrigue, plus some not-too-sweet boiled sweet, on the nose. Congruent palate, hybrid of herbal liqueur and a old fashioned cough sweet. Also some rose hip on the finish. 'Granny's patent medicine' commented my co-taster, 'and very nice too'.

More cherries on the nose, the herbs having faded. Palate dusty cherries. The alcohol is concentrating. Drying out on the finish. More fiery than herby.

+ 24 hrs

Possibly darkened a little. More prune on the nose. Hint of walnut. Palate a big rich wash of much darker fruits, pruneaux fourees d'Agen prominent. A hint of spirit, separately from the fruit. Long warming finish. Very attractive, but a little mushy round the edges. Over-decanted now, perhaps.

Consumed, with co-taster, 27/11/20 & 28/11/20
