Big aromatic bouquet leather, fruit, something piquant- black pepper? ... Currant? Or black berry? Is well blended w earthy overtones in flavor. Silky on tongue, fruit very forward but backed with some bitter tannin in moderation. Moderately long linger less acidic in finish than the 2006.

A triptych of ancient goodness: 61 Brane Cantenac, 62 Pape Clement, 70 Mouton Rothschild. All in terrific shape. #cellarinspection

Yum!! Really changed in glass over several minutes and continued to develop for awhile. Totally different wine right out the gate (thought it was Rhone Syrah tasted blind at first). Shows cab franc licorice and Merlot juice even if it's dominantly cab. Love it.

Adventures in pulling corks: provenance check. A fantastic 61, still alive, sun sweet, smoky red fruits, modest maderization. One of the best non-1er Cru or Left Bank I have tried. Excellent storage is the reason. Level was top shoulder, excellent for age.

#margaux #grandcruclasse Medium intensity aromas of red fruits that later really shine on the palate like cranberries. Seemingly more Merlot than Cab. Decant. Long finish

Barnyard on nose with deep and long cherry finish. In a great place and will hold.
