Broadbentism: 1996 Chateau Trottevieille

"It was showing quite well at a British Airways blind tasting in November 1997, with its attractive, youthful fruit. Much later, Philippe Casteja, an old friend, sent me a case out of the blue. A nice wine, quite good fruit and weight, on the lean side (1999 and subsequent), though, I confess, I have not been too keen on it recently: dry, rather strange piquant acidity. I doubt if he will send me more. Last tasted March 2001. *(*). Drink up" MB
