This wine displays a rusty, coffee color appearance, making it seem older than it is. The perfume, with its leather, earth, tobacco and truffle nose, paisr perfectly with the silken patina of age found in the mouth. Tasting younger that its 42 years of age would lead you to believe, it was a pleasant surprise proving that after 20 years, there are no great wines, but there is great bottles to be found!
Clear carmine with a brown edge. Strange acidic bouquet with some oak as well. The tannin is completely soft and the wine spreads through the mouth. There are unripe raspberries. Although the wine is still friendly, it is clearly past its peak. For the moment I would score it 83, but that definitely has been higher in the past.
