So lucky to taste a wine of this provenance. Recorked sometime in the last 20 years with identical vintage. It's at it's peak, never going to improve but hardly any room to. Almost perfect. Color? Light ruby red, opaque and just a touch of brown on the sides. Nose? Sort of like a chocolate mocha cherry tart. The mocha flavors really stand out. Taste? Once again, you get the hint of mocha along with sweet framboise macaroon characteristics. Length? How long can you count to?

(DRC Grands Echezeaux) was already on the table. The 1945 had another amazing nose, with deep, rich, plummy, violety and sensual fruit, more floral in its expressions. The wine was smooth with a long backside that was marred by a touch of metal. The metal blew off, and the acid came out, but the wine lacked overall weight; not strength, but weight. There were great earth flavors there, also
