Some nice earthy aromas, but the palate was stale smoked Gouda, and it fell apart with air.

One of the best Bordeaux's I've ever tasted. Very youthful but is approachable now. Nose is intoxicating with blackberry compote, smoke, graphite, menthol, cayenne. Layered complexity on the palate. Big, juicy, I might even say "spicy?" Sooooo much potential in one bottle. Kuruoshi Beef/Ch. Trotanoy Dinner @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple, TX

Muscular, firm, deep berry coulis, smoke, truffle. Young but opening with 4+hour decant. This will be a fantastic wine in another 10+ years. Kuruoshi Beef/Ch. Trotanoy Dinner @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple, TX

Red crunchy fruits, smoke, truffle. Lively and dances on the palate. The perfect foil for the morel mushroom risotto. Kuruoshi Beef/Ch. Trotanoy Dinner @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple, TX

So, this was the legendary '61. Label fell off but the cork was correct. Epic. Astonishing wine worthy of every accolade. Complete. Lush, dark in color. Nearly perfect, whatever that is.

Went in with low expectations because of the vintage, but was really surprised. The tannins are soft and rather pretty right now. Milk chocolate and plum with a little iron and raspberry.
