Thursday, October 17, 2013 - Still plenty of life left in this old man. Very moist cork, very high shoulder level, excellent color, from Premier Cru maybe 10 years ago. Strong pipe tobacco on the nose is very pleasing. Deep into the secondary phase as expected but the fruit is definitely there. Austere as are most 1966 Bordeaux still alive. Interesting, but a little too much work to find the pleasure for me. Surprisingly, the '66 Mouton won the battle on this day.
