Followed the 1981, 1961, 1928. Oldest presentation of the group but barely bricking; another perfect bottle. Elegant in the manner of 1961, good chewy fruit though without the density of 1928; terrific grip on back palate; enough VA to provide interest but not too much to detract. Great length, goes on and on. They don't make them like this any more. Could last a while but unlikely to improve.
Bern's. Well, finally a bad bottle. Not that we were looking for one but it had to happen sometime when you are drinking wines this old. It just didn't have any gas left. Fading fruit, a touch oxidized and very light in color.
