Ein Vorgeburtstag zu meinem 50. Geburtstag, 50 Jahre alt, perfekt in Kondition,klare Farbe etwas bräunlich, fruchtige Nase, Schokolade im Mund, sehr komplex, perfekte Flasche, von einem Top Burgunder oder Top Barolo nicht zu unterscheiden, einer meiner besten Weine, die ich bisher getrunken habe, wow
Colour is almost brown, and clearly unfiltered. The nose is very mature, with loads of ripe red and dark berries, raisin, tea, rosehip, earth. Taste is medium bodied, with incredible length, still fruity, complex and so well integrated. Simply gorgeous!
PnP. Gorgeous. #2 wine of the night behind a 1964 Chateau Latour. Other 1964 opened included 2 Cheval Blanc, G. Mascarelo, Lopez de Heredia horizontal (Bianco, Bosconia, Tondonia), G. Conterno, Chapoutier La Sizeranne.

(Vega Sicilia Unico) Tempranillo 65%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15%, Merlot, Malbec, Albillo 20%. This has a moderate depth of colour, with quite a tawny hue. Some volatile acidity on the nose, obviously very mature, with some sweet aromatics. A mature palate. Still has firm acidity, with a rounded, almost velvety mouthfeel - by no means has this dried out. Leathery notes. Wonderful persistence on the finish.
