A superb 95 point (Wine Journal) 1971 dessert wine oozing with character. "A similar colour to the 1976, perhaps even slightly more youthful. An exquisite nose of white flowers, coconut, apricot and white peach. Very fine definition. Lovely balance on the palate that has vibrant acidity, harmony, with notes of fresh citrus fruit laced with a touch of clear honey. Surprisingly minerally on the balletic finish. A superb 1971 that has decades ahead of it. Tasted November 2006. Now-2020+." Neil Martin, Wine Journal, 2007


labels torn & bin soiled, vintage is legible - good level
