Beautiful black cherry nose, black cherry fruit, leathery and meaty flavors, slight tannins, very well structured, drinking beautifully, 3rd best wine of evening in line up including 1959 Mouton and 1961 Latour
When mature Bordeaux gets old, it exchanges most of its fruit for secondary aromas with truffle, forest floor, earth, cigar smoke, cedar chest and often leaves just a hint of red cherries. That is exactly what happened to this, older wine. Medium bodied and marked by high acidity, well stored bottles could last, but it is not going to improve.
