In the UK at two recent offlines/tastings bottles of
the 1995 have been affected by TCA.
Does this bodega suffer from this or were we just unlucky ?
Previous experience with some 82 wasn’t exactly awesome either.
I’m not saying they have a problem but thought it was strange that two bottles from different sources were corked within a week of each other.
I imagine an e-mail from them will say similar !!
But it all means that I have never had a good 904 ! They are testing my loyalty !
Perhaps I’ll have to put them on my Rioja visit list ! Haro I believe ?
You can have your money or new bottles in return from the shop where you bought them.
I have tasted this wine only once in my life and it was really enjoyable. I found it a ’gentleman’ wine. Anyway, I don’t lie, two bottles corked and some others unsuccessful would be enough to me to lose the confidence in a wine.
You’re right, the winery is in Haro.
