  • Excellent...drinking really well.

    Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment

  • Last bottle of a mixed Beaucastel lot procured at auction years ago.

    Color: light ruby -> diffuse garnet rim. Bouquet: pale wine; pale nose. Not very expressive anymore: a little leather and a little garrigue. All tertiary aromas; not much in the way of fruit anymore. Palate was much more present than the nose; still medium bodied with saddle leather, sage, underbrush and minerals. Again, not really any fruit characteristics left, but considering the age, not surprising. Acidity spiking through with a fairly short finish. In decline but still quite drinkable. Rating is probably a little generous but I don't think any other CDP would show these legs after 40+ years!

  • Slow-oxygenated for four hours before consumption from the bottle. The color was transluscent cranberry red, with no signs of fading at the edges. The nose was initially of fresh tobacco (sweet humidor) and later picked up more earthy garrigue notes. The palate showed less depth than the nose, with garrigue and peppery red fruits dominating. This is holding steady and probably just past plateau. It will likely become an interesting old wine, but drinking now isn't bad. Solid, but not a repurchase.
