    (Cheval Blanc) The 1961 had a killer nose that was very racy with lots of vigor and t n’a. It was also very sweet in a musky, nutty, caramel-y way. There was lots of oil in this rich and nutty wine, and as soon as I tasted it, I flashed to 1971 and ‘76 Grange. This menthol/eucalyptus craziness was total Grange. It was rich, hearty and full of strawberry flavors. Bipin concurred that ‘this was always one of the sweeter ‘61’s,’ and likened it to a ‘bon-bon’

    (Chateau Cheval Blanc St Emilion) A very dense colour here. The nose tells me this wine is plainly oxidised and suffering from heat damage, and resembles a glass-matured Banyuls more than claret. A crying shame.
