I’d heard rumours of its demise, but only now have the rooks come home to roost (chez moi). The wine retains an overly optimistic young hue given that both the aromas and flavours are coloured by oxidation – this wine has passed. I will drink my last bottle over the weekend; either to enjoy or to further commiserate.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Brave man! I dug out the last two. One undrinkable, the other, well, we did drink it.

    Phew. Just had my last bottle of the 2002 on Friday, and it was drinking beautifully.

      Well-done Paul – at least I had only one bad experience….
