In the past two weeks I have had both of the wines below and found them to be fading hard and losing their middle. I am surprised by this turn of events.
2002 Michel Tête Juliénas
Shot from the word go. Browning at the edges, dried out.
2002 Coudert Fleurie Clos de la Roilette
Upon first opening, the smell of the cork and the aroma right out of the bottle was promising. In the glass it was also hollowed out in the middle. Damn.
I’ve got a Desvignes Côte du Py on deck. If it’s toast, I’ll be pissed.
