Bottled by Army & Navy Stores, Limited. Levels 1 BN, 1 TS, labels soiled, 1 slightly scuffed, Army & Navy embossed metal capsules corroded.

Pale rosy ruby. Very pale rim. A little spirity on the nose but certainly delicate. Candied rose petals. Really delicate and lifted. Reminds me of the rose-petal jam I was given a taste of by Sandra Tavares (Pintas) at Manoella yesterday! Very luxurious and fully evolved. Truly ethereal with great finesse. A little hot and spirity on the end. Tannins virtually disappeared. Jancis Robinson (October 2013) JancisRobinson.com


From a private collection, this lot has been stored for the past 25 years in the cellar of a London town house.
