A Fine 1970

Warre 1970 **** / *****

Deep garnet centre, thin browning rim; very fine, fragrant floral aromas (violets) , open, perfumed and very fine; still rich and voluptuous in style, backed by cast iron tannins, bitter-sweet, dark chocolate concentration follwed by lovely rich plummy length. This has real integrity and is drinking beautifully now but will continue to evlove well for another decade or more. 18.5
