19.5/20 Elmundovino: "Color surprisingly young It smells like woodcock, ferric. Very complex, meaty, very balsamic. In the mouth it still has noses, wet earth, it has fruit. It is very long".
95/100 Robert Parker: "Deep cherry red in color, it offers up a splendid perfume of mature dried fruit aromas and other savories. Silky and elegant on the palate, it displays ample ripe, complex, lingering flavors and a seamless finish".
95/100 Decanter: "It possesses a stunning nose of musk and shoe polish. Though clearly mature, the palate is in great shape with sweet cedar tinged red fruits, apricot, beeswax and a touch of truffle oil. The tannins and freshness are terrific providing ample structure and density. Quite extraordinary".

The buyer was immediately contacted and informed about the situation. Parcel shipped again to UK, free of charges (even if it had to be paid by the addressee).
