Penfolds Grange 2004

Penfolds Grange 2004  

During Vinexpo in Bordeaux I could taste Grange 2004 with Winemaker Peter Gago.

Really a great wine. Very concentrated in the nose with flavors of ripe cherries, tobacco and a hint of cigar box and vanilla. Very complex, full bodied lots of ripe tannins and very long on the palate. To drink from 2012 to 2034. 97 Christen points.

Grange 1994. Delicate flavors of mint, eucalypt, chocolate and spices. Concentrated and not a bit tired! To drink from now until 2024. Unfortunately there is only one bottle left in my private cellar. 94 Christen points

I’m a bit jealous not being able to spend 600$ per bottle. Peter Gago mentioned that the wine was sold in Australia in only a few days. I’m sure in Europe are still plenty of bottles left.

In the same tasting I did appreciate very much St. Henri Shiraz 2005. Rich flavor from red berries and already a hint of chocolate. Full bodied and very long lasting. To drink now until 2025. 92 Christen points.

The potential of this wine is very high. Peter offered as well a 1991 vintage. Still very complex with flavors of truffles and leather, full bodied and long lasting. Not a bit tired.90 Christen points. The good news St. Henri Shiraz is selling for 60 to 100$
