Kemp's 65th including some 1945 wines.: A real treat provided by Jeff King. This was still in business and doing nicely. The nose is classic old Bordeaux with a pleasant musty quality, slight funk and plenty of tobacco. Even a bit of cherries. More cherries and dried cherries on the palate. Layered and complex. Good showing.
Truly, a truffle lovers delight. Truffles, earth and more truffles. Did I say truffles yet? Tart, black cherry in the mouth. The style of the wine was a bit austere. Very old school in style abd probably slightly past its prime. Still, the honor of tasting this wine at the Chateau was not lost on me.
