Quite tight and enclosed but a dark underlying jolt of citrus acidity and dark sweet fruit. The underlying material is great and sheer quality. From a sensory glass later this is much more open. Lime and wet marble. Excellent.

1992 vintage. From the list at Oustau in Les Baux. Borrowing a photo because the bottle served had lost its label, but the cork was appropriate. This was med gold and heavy in the glass. Immediate smile when a whiff of the fruity nose was taken. Lots of sweet fruit, marzipan, stone, white flowers and complexity in the nose and mouth. Over 3 hrs this really built into a lovely aged burg. The acidity was never super big, consistent with the vintage. But this was a really good wine that is an example for why you age these bottles.
