MJ’s cellar is awe-inspiring. Once again, an absolutely pristine old wine from his cold, cold cellar - a 1980’s Krug Grande Cuvée! A first for me and gosh it blew me away. Still so fresh and energetic, yet rich and concentrated, all intensified by time. Complex aromas of orange peel, dried apricot, dehydrated apples, lemon oil, marzipan, and a touch of sherry. Full-bodied, textured, and deep on the palate, with mellow honeyed notes mind-bogglingly juxtaposed against zesty citrus notes; some cream and sweet spices, high acidity, and heaps of salinity. Gosh was this good.

World premiere of the 170 edition. A dazzling streak of acidity runs through this. Soft composed lemon notes and a subtle minerality. Quite light at the moment. It needs some time in bottle to flesh out but great material

The new bottling of the 169 was showing extremely well in a 375ml.

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.

This is the 2011 vintage base. Not surprised due to how young it is, but there was very little notes of their typical slightly oxidative style. Yeasty, but more honeyed. Hint of toffee, caramelized green apple and nice layers.
