BLOSSOMING – 9.5/10 STARS
Was in a rush, I did not decant it earlier, so pretty much pop and drink. I know it wouldn’t be enough airing for the wine, so it’s also a great opportunity to watch the evolution in the glass and decanter. It started off with strong but elegant smoke, took 15 mins for the addictive smoke to get covered by strong fruits, mainly blackcurrant and dark fruits. Initially the wine tasted very thin and lacked taste. The wine opened up in the glass about 30 mins later and blossomed into masculine style in 45 mins, turned out to be very elegant with loads of chewy dark fruits. It’s fun to watch the evolution of the wine!
