This was remarkably good considering its age. Cork came out without difficulty and we drank immediately. Immediate pleasant aromas were an encouraging start with some fruit on the nose. On the palate, some typical characteristics of a fine Bordeaux, though clearly past its peak as would be expected. Slightly bitter, but with reasonable length. What was most remarkable was that the wine was still tasting well three hours later. So overall, pleasantly surprised.
Brown and muddy. Still could be pleasant (although in a rather decadent way) on the nose: spice-cake or gingerbread with a splash of liquor turning over a few hours into rye bread or home-made beer-like. Flat, totally disintegrated on the palate.
