Broadbentism: 1920 Pierre Ponnelle Pommard

"Extremely good level and colour; showing its age, faisande*, whiff of tar and fungi; touch of liquorice, drying-out. One cannot expect great things from a negotiant's village wine of this age, but one never knows. The pursuit of old wines is fun, an occasional revelations, sometimes leading to deep despair. Dining with Camilla and Alistair Sampson, antique dealer and odd-bottle magpie, March 2000." - MB

(*faisande - matured)
