1900 Chateau du Rayne Vioneau Vicomte de Pontac

Post by AHB » 11:31 Mon 28 Dec 2015

Polished dark brown colour with a yellow rim. A wonderful nose of beeswax and mandarin. Smooth on the palate with gentle flavours mixing fruit and polish. The gentle acidity keeps the balance well and support lovely development on the palate. A great flush of flavours comes through on the aftertaste before a very big, very long finish. 90/100. Drunk 16-Dec-15. Decanted 1 hour.

Drunk at Lunch at Otto's on Wednesday 16 December 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
