Two Bottles Of Mature Spätburgunder

These bottles came out of a mixed case I bought some time ago. It wasn´t these bottles that caught my interest in the case in question, but they came along. So lets see what I got.

1993 Spätburgunder, Franz Keller
A big, ripe, somewhat murky nose that opens up with notes of overripe raspberries, boiled root vegetables, forest floor and warm spices. A fine mature warmth. Nice.
The taste is mature and warm with notes of ripe lingonberries, dry herbs, earth and dry tobacco. A medium long finish with a nice dry character. This is actually rather nice, with a fine mature feeling.
84p   (tasted 2015/07)

1998 Oberrotweiler Vulkanfelsen Spätburgunder, Heinrich Neponuk Steyert
Smells and taste (ouch!) like sewer water. Dead like a dodo.
