What does a Groot Constantia ca 1790 taste like?

I got a comment on a recent post on the ca 1790 Groot Constantia bottle from François Audouze. I’ve read his columns in Swedish wine magazine Livets Goda for several years (though unfortunately not lately). He tells me that he tasted a Groot Constantia vintage 1791 a short while ago – read about it here and here. Obviously the bottle is not quite as unique as I believed, though the shape of the 1791 bottle seems to differ a bit from the Stockholm bottle – perhaps its wine tapped from a barrel into locally made bottle.
