Vin de Constance 1992

Vin de Constance 1992
Doesn’t taste appreciably younger – well, four years in the lifetime of this wine is probably neither here nor there. Sinuous pear toffee wrapped round a knife blade of acidity, very fresh and mineral; complex notes of mint, blue cheese and coffee. A long, very fine finish.
