Added Jun 19, 2012 at 3:21pmNot as acid as the the Gruaud Larose 1975, but some yeasr younger. Almost same color as Gruaud Larose 1975. The cork was a bit spongey, probably from the upright position in the store where I bought it. ery interesting to taste.

Added Jun 19, 2012 at 3:18pmYes, an orange red wine with some age in the bottle. We opened it snoothly and almost with no damage to the cork. It had a flower odeur and was quite nice to drink. It is an old wine thats for sure, but very interesting to drink.

Added Jun 19, 2012 at 3:25pmA phantastic wine in its good age of drinking. You could save this or just drink it I guess. Like the Cos d'estornel a liquid silver feeling down the throat.

Pintia Toro 2003Compare and Buy
Average Price: $56.64
Added Mar 13, 2010 at 10:13amDrank the Pintia 2003 in early 2008. Extreme power of tannins, dark and too young I suppose. My 2. bottle will be in the cellar for a while.

Added Nov 3, 2009 at 4:51pmTasted in 2007. Blueish red colored thick and very very spicey in the bouquet. Extremely nice to the tongue and mouth region and fat with a long finish and "back of the nose" experience. This is a wine valued very high in my personal experience. I would say coffee , tobacco, even a bit rocky in layer above the well hung fruit.

Added Jul 19, 2009 at 6:30pmAn exceptionel thick and yellow wine, with very small hints of botrytis. Not in the sauternes or eiswine way, but in its own fat dry style. This must be the closest you get to liquid gold. Tasted in 2007 (Sorry Nicolas but I had tor try it) it was chewy, siropy and very powerfull and not a normal Chenin Blanc product. This is incredible.

Added Jun 12, 2009 at 10:48amI tried this wine in late summer of 2005 before going to a U2 concert in Copenhagen. I mean 98 RP was the right thing to do at such a moment. Anyway I was not disapointed since this dry tannic and very intense wine was remarkbly powerfull and coloured our white plastic cups (I know, I know, but who will carry the crystal!) on the inside with a layer of dark purple sediment. I allmost shed a tear when one of our companions told me that this would be perfect in another 10 years or so. He was right. Lucky for me I allready had made the beginners consumer fault, which is to only buy one bottle. Since my failure with the Tardieu-Laurent Cornas Coteaux 1998, I have allways kept to the concept of buying at least 2 bottles when trying something new out.

Added Jun 10, 2009 at 7:57pmYeah, this is funny. This wine is fighting back to my tongue in three different ways. Has a long finish. Dark, dark Pinot Noir, with a good bunch of acidity flavours. It is definitly alive. Might give it a couple of years in the cellar if you can afford more than one :-)
