For 60 years this bottle was part of a collection held at Massandra, a winery on the Black Sea built for Czar Nicholas II.
Colour: Amber with olive tints.
Nose: White chocolate sweetness which followed through on the palate.
Palate: It's driving acidity cleansed the palate of its honeyed sweetness and prolonged the flavour in the mouth for a long time.
|When to Drink||Perfect to be enjoyed now although it will keep for a good few years.|
The wineries in Massandra were built during the reign of Czar Nicholas II. During the process, wine caves containing thousands of bottles were constructed beneath the city. This “personal wine cellar” of the Czar contained tens of thousands of bottles. These caves survived the Russian Revolution, both World Wars, the fall of Communism, and Yakov Smirnoff.
In 1990, about 13,000 of these bottles – never before available in the West – were put to auction.
Right now we have one of these legendery bottles available at Mumbles Fine Wines.
