There was something wrong with this tasting. Most of the vintages had a dry sourness not usually seen in Warre. I suspect dirty decanters, though other causes are possible. Hence these TNs should not be interpreted as typical of the performance of Warre.
W63: glorious red, though quite translucent. SRG: ‟A hint of dry dusty smell”. I agreed. Very soft entry, then the same sourness found in most of the older vintages, then lots of strawberry fruit. Later both sourness and strawberry had lessened.
