Drinking some old bottles...: Lots of obvious tertiary characteristics, mushrooms and forest floor, along with tobacco and almost citric notes, with a core of genuine fruit still at the centre of it all. Clearly old bordeaux, but I'm not sure the Margaux side was still there, although it was far gentler than an also ancient Latour alongside.
drank for my wife's 50th birthday with the Reames. Brick red, cloudy filled to neck. Cork was wet and moldy to the top. Nose was wonderful floral. Mouth was light and feminine typical of Margaux. Had a remarkable creamy palate.
