  • 1966 Château Léoville Las Cases

    Lots of color for a wine as old as this. The nose is immense cedar, cassis and a nose of immense grandeur. The taste is great, a palette of flavors like herbes, spices and some fruit with nice acidity and bitters. After taste is incredible, so beautiful! Now I know why Leoville las Cases has such a good name. And I understand why Michael Broadbent gives this one 4 stars!

  • 1975 Château Lafon-Rochet

    An intensely beautiful color of a developed wine. The nose has something great like mint, cocoa, leather, vanilla, in short complex and big. The taste is a confirmation of the nose. Cocoa, but then yet even more chocolate. There are still the necessary tannins present but they are beautiful in balance. The aftertaste is long, quite lingering, and beautiful.Saint Estephe at top!

  • 1978 Château Mouton-Baronne-Philippe en hommage a Pauline

    Very nice color beautifull orange to the rim, de nose is strongly 'colored' by its tobacco, underneath there are pencil shavings and there is some fruit still there, mainly blackberry. The taste is very good, this wine is 'hot', has got good structure and is quite rich and thick. Tannins are there and thats still a whole lot, there is a real nice sweetness to this wine which lasts very long in the fiish, totally balanced, very good, and can even last a few more years, is now on its peak.
    The wine looks Inky colored. The legs are Slow. It smells like Blackberry, Cedar, Lead Pencil, and Tobacco. It tastes like Blackberry, Tobacco, and Honey. The body is Full. The wine has Fleshy texture. The wine finishes Long.
