Yay! But it was won through devious means of multiple guesses. Shouldn't it go to Ian since he actually had the right idea from the start? I just started pretty randomly throwing out names when I realised my guesses were off the mark, lol!!
It's a good description of the Coutale style that I've experienced, Bob! I've only had the '97 a couple times and thought it an ok wine, but with such prominent coco-powder on the nose that I though it a bit spoofy! I don't know if they spoofed back then, but that's what it certainly tasted like. The 99 seems better from you note.
Thanks for the fun! I'll be happy to make the next one, unless Ian, the rightful winner, would like to do one first.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
