Domaine de Trevallon Rouge 1982
The wine :
A legendary wine. It is sad to hear that the Domaine does not possess a single bottle. I've drunk this many times in London and at Beaugraviere in France, but this might be the first bottle I've tasted for 10 years. It now has a brown, mahogany colour and has developed into a fine old Burgundy. It reminds me of DRC and Vogué wines from the 1950's. There is great complexity here and sweetness mingled with forest floor notes and a lingering, gentle, sweet finish. Fading away but still a beauty.
