Wow - the cork was in great nick and the level was <1cm. Obviously not a great year, so the nose was understandably muted, though it still had a lovely aroma of sour, slightly unripe cherries, with an unfortunate (but not off-putting) whiff of alcohol; at first the palate was not very exciting but it really opened up after 15 minutes in the glass: like smashing your head through a plate glass wall of acidity, just to reveal later upon layer upon layer cherries and sour apples, unfolding like a graceful peacock's tail of complexity beyond!
