Such a complex, aromatic nose and silky soft texture. Allspice, rhubarb, dead leaves, black tea. I just love the Ampeau style.

This is slightly over the hill but still some lovely burgundy character. Decaying wet leaves, cherry pits, resolved tannin

Tastes past its prime for such a strong vintage. Brownish color, old tertiary nose, decent on the palate. Not a usual bold ‘93.

Wet autumn leaves, earth, mushroom, very much secondary/tertiary aromas. Seamless tannins, medium finish. Almost Rhone like.

A little long in the tooth but a delightful afternoon quaff with some Neapolitan pizza with an old friend.

Has all the qualities I look for in aged Burgundy. Glad we have more!
