The wine in this lot has following tasting note from Allen Meadows -(Bouchard bottling). (Bouchard P&F bottling). Like several of the vintages in this era I have had a huge amount of bottle variation. The example in the tasting displayed almost no bricking but there was enough volatile acidity present on the nose to push the spice and secondary fruit aromas to the background. Otherwise there is a lovely mouth feel to the sleek, rich and stony medium weight plus flavors that terminate in a robust and overtly tannic finish. An odd showing to say the least. In fairness, this is the first bottle I have had that displayed this level of volatile acidity but even so it's hard to see the fruit outliving the structure.
