Buitenverwachting Christine 2007

Opened this with my wife to mark our wedding anniversary. By a lucky coincidence it’s the same age as my marriage. It’s pleasant, gentle and soothing, but you expect more from 8 years. By a slightly less lucky coincidence that’s exactly what my wife said!

    I actually have a case of this that I bought years ago – tried one this evening and have to say I am also disappointed. It wa quite smooth but it lacked a certain plushness that I was expecting. It has a slight sourness to it that I recognize from old bordeauxs.. A bit boney and austere?

      Hi Gary,
      You’ve got more patience than me! I’ve had other bottles of the Christine that have certainly had that “plushness”. Maybe I kept this one too long, or maybe it was just a weaker year. Just have to try some other vintages and make sure I guess 🙂
