Description

    Kokour Surozh 1971
    Dessert, Massandra
    Bottle (6)
    Golden color like '80s Sauternes. Most complex nose of this trio (86, 76 and 71) which I suppose you would expect for the additional age. There seems to be less development evident in the 10 years between 86 and 76 than there is in the 5 years between 76 and 71, but I don't think that's a bad thing. This wine has a darker, slightly oxidative quality in the nose that is still honey, but appears to be fully mature, unlike the others tasted on this day. The palate expresses the same qualities however it also boasts a lot more brightness and vibrancy than the nose alludes. It's almost explosive on the palate, not only because it has a lot of zest but because it is so unexpected after the dull-ish nose. The finish is sweet, pure and long with honeyed pineapple and citrus and just a touch of that raisiny apricot flavor that so many of the light-colored Massandra exhibit. Delicious. (95pts FCM)
