Wine tasting note: 1996 Lorenzon Mercurey

1996 Lorenzon Mercurey

24th Jul 1999 GBP13 Burgundy Table Red

[Tasted Blind] Even garnet, bright and pale [Pinot Noir?] with a pinkish rim, heavy legs. Attractive, fresh nose of strawberries, forest fruits, meat, old oak and mushrooms. Sour cherries and raspberries, very juicy acidity, firm but dusty tannins, raw oak and a long bitter-sour finish. Could be good but needs plenty of breathing or a few years.
