This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1978 Brane-Cantenac

Dinner at home.

1978 Brane-Cantenac - obviously been kept in poor condition, since a wine of this age shouldn't be at low-shoulder level.  Color was very light thanks to an abundance of sediment at the bottom of the bottle.  Initially very sharp and alcoholic on the nose, and definitely more than a little musty and stinky.  The musty elements cleared up with some aeration in glass.  Oxidized and caramelized nose, almost date-like, with some nutty, earthy, animal, and leather notes.
