  • Still very much alive, perfectly mature. Total provenience and perfect storage conditions for 50 or so years and a cork still in good shape. The label was in ruins. Old brick red color as it should be. Hints of mold and leather on the nose, opened up after 30 mins. Multitude of flavours, coffee, herbs and a hint of ripe plum. A great experience.

  • Vintage 1964 - 50 years after (Roberts 50th birthday tasting) (Restaurant Hotel Königshof, Munich (Bavaria)): And it was raining and raining ... tons of acids, short. Use for cooking or sell at auction.

  • Tasted blind: Still an intensive color one would never expect a 50year old wine. Unfortunately the wine was so badly corked that it did not give any inidcation about potential flavors/tastes.

  • This definitely had the smell of a 44 year old wine and before trying it I was pretty much thinking that it would be long since dead. While it did have one foot in the grave, the other foot was firmly rooted in the earth (literally from both taste and smell) but a little fruit was still peaking around the corner. After about 30 minutes or so this started to decline but it was great to try it out and from what I understand, the bottle only cost $40.

  • I opened the wine just before I poured it. My experience with the older Bordeaux's of off vintages is that they have a short glass life and it is better to let in sit at the table for a few minutes than serving a faded wine. The wine was dark cranberry color with no signs of bricking out at the edge. Probably stored correctly. Very smooth with the fruit shining through. A little tanic finish which gave the wine some balance and grip. As it sat in the glass with dinner it was changing. You could sence that it life in the glass was limited and after about 45 minutes it started to loose it. We did not wait for the end to come but instead finished the wine. One of our guests had just tried a 62 Cos earlier in the week and thought this was a superior bottle. Maybe the storage factor. For a 42 year old wine it held it head upfine.
