This wine was sexy as hell! 1961 vintage and still showing supple strawberry and rich red currant. Fresh crushed rosemary, dusty earth, leather and iron. Poured crystal clear with a pale but very vibrant garnet. Opened up with air beutiful dried red fruit and herbal perfume carried by that savory earthy undertone. We should all be so lucky to age as gracefully as this did

Just a tad less vibrant than the Latour. Brilliant comparison side by side. Less definition, power & poise, but still a fantastic tasting wine. Full with finesse and elegance in the foreground.

Figured I would get back into the swing with a little 61 get together we had. This was a perfectly stored bottle with perfect provenance I acquired 5 years ago. Amazing. Took about an hour to open up. Dried blackberries, and blueberry liqueur with wonderful herbal notes. Awesome

Top 5 wines that I have had in my life. Velvety texture makes all the other excellent wines tonight pointless
