1999 Domaine Font de Michelle CdP, Cuvee Etienne Gonnet

We had this last night with a 5 year Gouda. There was some sediment, I carefully decanted it. As I was decanting the beautiful nose of crushed berries, spice, and hints of cinnamon and bay leaf filled the area. On the palate, flavors of juicy ripe raspberries were balanced by copious still-a-bit-rough tannins and ample acidity. I wish I had more of this. I' guess this needs another 2 years in the bottle to reach optimum. 92-94
