Dining in the best, semi-unknown, Vietnamese restaurant in all of Paris, with a very deep wine list, where the chef/owner was drinking the leftover bottles on day 2 of the '76 Judgement of Paris, and this bottle is on the wine list for €190, you bet you drink it! This was his last bottle, no more FAW on the wine list now.

Dusty cherry, leather, slight mint note on the tail end of the finish, easily 10+ years left on this bottle, tannins are completely resolved.
