Beautiful wine. Classic 61. Great balance. Big nose, rich palate and moderately long and lovely finish.

A famously grand old claret that has stood the test of time--proof of the greatness of the 1961 vintage in Bordeaux!

A nice amount of red currant fruit for such an old wine white truffle dried herbs. Soft and smooth tannins fully resolved with dried tobacco spice with truffle. Finish 35+ very good +

One of the most spectacular bottles I’ve had in a very long time. Like standing in a cedar forest, shaving pencils, and plucking blackcurrants straight from the bush - running the leaves through your hands and bathing in their scent. This is a truly remarkable wine. It came from a bottle with a low shoulder level but it could have effortlessly lasted for another 20 years. Enchantingly powerful palate that never ends - tannins present but perfectly assimilated. Smelling the cork the following morning made it all come streaming back!

Awakened from the cellar where it slumbered since it was released. A perfect wine.
