A surprisingly nice diversion this wine!
1992 Vincent & Denis Berthaut, Fixin
Whilst the wax is broken, and there are signs of seepage through the cork, there’s no trace of oxidation on the nose. The colour remains deep and robust, the nose rather clean. Here is a big chunk of wine, still with plenty of tannin, yet not particularly rustic – impressively so given such an obvious concentration – there’s very well judged acidity too. I have to say that I’m very, very impressed – a wine that transcended my expectations.
Rebuy – Yes
