Overraskende mørk kjerne med brun kant. Medium til god fylde. Fremdeles litt tannin, bra syre og god lengde. Hadde lave forventninger til denne vinen, i og med at den var tappet på flaske i Danmark, men fikk en hyggelig opplevelse av vinen.
From 375 ML: I pretty much regard anything over 20-25 years from a half as a total crapshoot. But sometimes you roll 7s. Cigarbox and lead pencil over surprisingly fresh fruit, typical Beychevelle elegance, this is pretty not powerful. B+
It's always nice to be surprised when a wine shows much better than expected. Beychevelle was on top of their game in the 60's and this bottle shows why. Truffle, smoke, tobacco, earth, plums and leather scent to a soft textured, medium/full bodied wine that is fully mature. The wine ends with a spice and cassis finish. This bottle was in such perfect condition, it is probably better than most examples out there to taste.
