Tasting wine is a whole lot like a blind person feeling your face for far too long to "see" what you look like. Feeling this wine with my tongue and cheeks, I at first perceived a gestalt of dried sage, shy green olives, withered twig, a satchel of dehydrated and tart, unripe cherries, moon-harvested autumn cranberry, expired Craisins and straw.
Then, as I bore past the nose circa 45 minutes later, I felt up a minerality of sun-baked slate and parched potting soil (not wet potting soil)
And... just before the cops arrived, I copped another feel about 2 hours later and I beheld more of a wizened menthol and eucalyptus on this, the 2001 clos du val.
The cork broke several times before the very bottom of it ahso very gently came out intact. Phew! — 3 months ago
