Well it is on this bottle…my tasting note would be something like: 'aromas of poo, dirt and rotting hay. A great core of fruit ruined by a hard metallic taste'. I'm not the quickest off the blocks when it comes to finding minute levels of brett spoilage, but there is no doubting this one. Its a buggar, the fruit you can see looks really good.
The good news is that this is the only vintage of Alion I've seen with large scale brett problems, from the 95 onwards the wines all look very clean. NR
