Better than burgundy? Tannins have softened into the ether and the color lightly glows like a spooky zombie rosé. There is a sweet singing brightness and an unreal nose of soy, anise and roses.

Extraordinarily lively for a bottle so aged. Plenty of fruit left and haunting notes on the finish

1955 vintage. Pale ruby - but not as pale as expected. Some volatility and black cherry, earth and truffle. Little weird on nose. On the palate, still some fruit and tannic structure. Medium minus body and good finish. Fabulous. Drink now but might last. Excellent.

1955. Held in the glass nicely and a great nose.
