Compromised cork had this wine well past its prime but was still barely alive, briefly.

Beychevelle 1970! #Magnum #bordeaux at nearly 50 years this wine was still full of energy.

First wine in flight four for the Bordeaux Master's Class at Heart's Delight with wines from Saint Julien and Pauillac.

Medium ruby red. Layered nose with cassis, black currants, cinnamon and nutmeg. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Not a lot of fruit on the palate, quite earthy, a little bit of dark fruit, a touch green and needs some time to integrate further. Long finish. Drink from 2020 till 2035.

2006. Very solid wine, though still quite tannic. Tannins are mellowed a little by the Merlot in this wine that seems to give it a smoother overall feel. Dark dark fruit with a not so subtle overriding earthiness

1976 vintage. Mature and strutting its stuff. Classic cassis/berry with nice leafy nuances. Mr Fox approves!
