From a 375ml bottle, the color was incredible, the nose was quite nice, still a little fruit in there, but a (no surprise) not great earthiness made it just barely palatable. But considering it's 45 years old, it was quite the pleasant surprise. It would have been great to drink 15 years ago.
Not the best bottle with a rather low fill around the 5-6cm mark. Cork completely soaked. PnP. Great color, looks a good 20 years younger than it is, with a solid garnet and only very light browning at the rim. Interesting nose, blind would have guessed a white, perhaps a mature Chablis and not a left bank red. Slightly oxidized notes but not too bad. Some red fruit on the palate and again a bit oxidization. Some fine tannins shows after about 1h in the open botlle. NR - am sure you can find better bottles.
This is still hanging on really well and makes a great drink, though decidedly very mature and only for those who like their wine to taste like mint, leather, and herbs. Not a whole lot of fruit here, at least not in the primary sense, but it actually retains a certain freshness. Could keep another 10+ years if you have good bottles in proper storage conditions.
