The Influence of the bottle size during aging Château d‘Escurac 1998

During a tasting of a half, a bottle and a magnum of Château d‘Escurac 1998 I could clearly see the difference from the bottle size on the aging process. All the bottles where stored the last then years at ideal conditions at the same place.

The half bottle was ripe with lots of chocolate, coffee and a bit of plum on the nose. The tannins where fine and silky. The wine is ready to drink and has a potential of 1 to 2 years.

The bottle had less of the aging flavors but more fruity components. The tannins where ripe but clearly present. Aging potential 2 – 4 years

The magnum was still young and fresh with more vanilla and fruit flavors. The tannins where still very present. This bottle has an aging potential from 5 to 7 years
