This wine has been in my cellar since 1980. We cracked it for my daughter's 40th BD. The wine had a few years of less than optimum cellaring. For sure the bttle was past its prime but still had some very nice features. The color was a light auburn red with thick edges. Nose was of roses and a light cork funk (not TCA!) The cork was destroyed by inseting a stewards cork screw so it was filtered and decanted immediately. The wine had a beautiful floral character and light tongue. The fruit was medium intensity and mostly a strawberry-cherry note. The finish was delicate and had very light dry tannin.
Light 'tuile' colour. Underwood, autumn, medicine chest, minerals and iron tones in the nose. Beautifully fragile elegance and long lingering. Guessed it correct as 1970-s, and thought about 1970 or 1975. 1973 didn't even cross my mind. But this is a beautiful and elegant wine.
Light but lively colour; old nose but fragrant and vital, cedar, tobacco, floral note, hint of fruit; relatively dry and light, feminine, very elegant owing to its exalted terroir, juicy raspberry, lovely hint of sweetness, harmonious, very well integrated acidity, good length. A very lovely wine.
