TN: 1976 Selection Portier (Importer Patrick Portier), Moulin a Vent

TN: 1976 Selection Portier (Importer Patrick Portier), Moulin a Vent. Obviously well past its prime, but it actually improved over the course of three hours, growing from something quite awkward to something quite drinkable and interesting, if still stogy. A sweet core of somewhat stewed fruit, a bit tangy, and, despite its flaw of old age, quite lovely in the end. A nice experience and a fun auction experience for the modest price. I would have guessed a very old Burg. 84 points.

In the end, I would up my score to an 86. Quite fun!
