The wine is delicious from the first moment of opening, boasting exotic spices, honey, orange peel and curry aromas and a luscious sensual texture on the palate. Then, day after day over the course of a week, it developed lanolin smoothness and the unmistakable notes of very old amontillado Sherry, with a delicate balance and amazing freshness. The finish was more reminiscent of old Cognac, though Cognac could never have this finesse and complexity. Later on, exciting saline and boletus mushroom notes appeared. Each day something new emerged from this wine, building on the increasingly complex structure of the days before. I decided to give it 99 points at its peak – five days after opening the bottle.

A golden amber colour with a good resemblance to falling leaves in winter.

A smell of honey, wax and smokiness with matured white prunes and pears, and notes of caramel and toffee.

The palate is round and mellow with dominance of honey and caramel, toasted bread, matured plums and white prunes with a surprising acidity that gives to the wine an astonishing acidity.
