Tasting Notes

The 1862 Sercial has a refined nose with just the right amount of oxidation along with touches of lanolin, walnut, pine needles and honeycomb. The palate does not quite match up to the nose. There is a slight fish scale note on the entry and it seems a little hollow, needing more substance to back up its rapier-like acidity. The finish offers tobacco, hazelnut and a touch of sour lemon. This was probably better 20 or 30 years ago. Drink it now.
