Vallet Freres Latricieres Chambertin 1959
I had high hopes for this wine. Instead they were slightly dashed. This was an interesting wine, not good, but at the same time not bad just meh. It was a kind of reverse donut - there wasnt much up front, then the fruit came forward a bit and there was just nothing at the finish. Well actually thats not quite true. At the end there was an unpleasant sensation not too dissimilar to that striking bitterness that comes from tasting earwax. It stayed on the palate for far too long as well (the earwaxyness that is), almost tainting the next wine that I tasted. Shame really, but such is wine.
