In remarkable condition; brickish red (still) clour, right to the edge of the glass.
Nose and palate still showing dominant cassis, with green beans and hints of tobacco. Not extraordinary complexity but beautifully together and remarkably youthful for its 52 years. Showed the longevity of well cellared 1961 Bordeaux. Some thought it was a 1978, it showed that well. Thanks, Bill!
Paul's Bday at Custom House: Lovely nose of dark ripe dry red fruits, slight sour cherry. Bit of nice sour red cherry flavors then falls off quickly. A very Burgundian, soft elegant, refined and finesse, seems younger then vintage, just falls off quickly. Good sour cherry edge. Seems younger than vintage especially from 1961.
