Exploring The Forgotten Side Of Bordeaux - Chapter XV

It has been a while since the last chapter, and while finishing this bottle I concluded that this will be the last one, except for the Epilogue. It has been fun drinking these 27 bottles of white Bordeaux, but they haven´t striked a chord with me. Still got some bottles though, but I will be saving them for a rainy day.

1986 Château La Louviére
A attractive, mature, soft but persistent nose with notes of warm grass, white and red currants, yellow plums and some dried up honey. Very, very good. A fine oily character. An ever so slight aroma of dry botrytis. Perfectly mature.
The taste is round, mature and very nice with notes of dried peach, plums, dry grass and a touch of band aid. A medium long, dry finish. This has matured in a fine way. Very, very good.
