Wine tasting note: 1996 Tollot Beaut Savigny Lavieres

1996 Tollot Beaut Savigny Lavieres

11th Jun 1998 GBP15 Burgundy Table Red

The same wine - opened 2 hours before tasting.
Pale purple/red fading to pink.
Similar nose but showing more fruit and a trace of barnyard.
Medium to full-bodied with plenty of cherry fruit, almonds, more obvious oak and good acidity. A longer, richer finish.
This wine didn't take too kindly to being opened a day in advance, losing a lot of interest and character. This suggests that it should be enjoyed while young and fresh.
