Mature Cote de Beaune: 1959 to 1990 (Langham Place Hotel, Mongkok, Hong Kong): Half-glass drank blind at a pre-dinner tasting with a few top-ups over dinner. Rose-hip water in colour and appearance. Nose is very light and chiffonesque but completely alluring.....almost dilute but very perfumed.... gorgeous! Palate is much thicker than you'd expect from the nose.....sweet....strawberry liqueur.....heady....powerful....muscular. Very resonant. My 4/12, Group's #4. Just like the Bordeaux 1959s, this is not yet fully open for business. What a treat.
