A great feat of survival for the vintage. Very much alive, no sign of oxidation though fully tertiary, quite earthy and rustic, would never have been the most refined wine but very enjoyable. I liked this more than some others around the table.

(Cos d'Estournel) The 1948 was another excellent nose, more wheaty with some underlying caramel. Old wood exerted itself aromatically. While leaner than the last two, the ’48 was still excellent, also wheaty on its palate. One found it ‘the best with food’
