Bok tasted one Ao Yun vintage
and found it extremely seductive!




Bok went on an adventure of Ao Yun 2013 and par it against Malescot St Exupery, also his top favorite! lets' see how it compares!




Extremely Seductive and Intense Freshness

Bok Tried Ao Yun 2013 vs Malescot St Exupery Margaux 3rd Growth
and found it extremely sexy and fresh!

He exclaimed "Ao Yun to be Indeed Very Promising!"
Bravo :)


 


I decanted both wines for almost 4 hours (including dinner it would have been 6 hours), although I had a sip of both wines immediately upon decanting both bottles. Bouquet of Ao Yun has this elevated acidity with a bit of chemical oak funk, and the acidity was reflected in the content as well, however, a simple sip and there are a lot of promising elements inside, and already overtook Malescot by a shoulder as my preference.

A couple hours later, I took another whiff, and I was impressed, very mellow fruit and slightly elevated oak profile. A sip and I was sold, I was really impressed with the content, the fruit is very expressive, soft and elegant, more importantly, drinking right next to Malescot! It stood tall, not giving in a bit in terms of overall performance!

Stunning Ao Yun
Expressive, Elegant Stood Tall Against Malescot!
