Wineplease, this bottle was singing and firing on all cylinders. Probably the WOTN imho. It had all the elements you want in an aged cote rotie. It was described by one attendee as having the nose of a charcuterie board (bacon, cured meat, spice) with a heavenly floral (violet) hint. Drinking absolutely beautifully, but can hold on another decade easily. Worth sourcing if you have a chance. As a group, we felt that no score be assigned, but just take in the wondrous nature.
This bottle, from that night, is in a very short WOTY list.
Thanks sincerely, Dok, for sharing this.
