Community Tasting Note

  • 2p8h wrote: 98 points

    February 5, 2013 - For me, a memorable wine experience. Though no stranger to great wine, I seldom have the opportunity to taste wine nearly as old as myself. (I shall have the chance to taste a chateau Margaux from my birth year 1953 on my sixtieth in July). I was impressed how fresh and robust this lovingly stored bottle was. Everything in perfect balance. How can it be? Over half a century in the bottle, and this gift of the vineyard provided enjoyment that made my guests sit back in their chairs. All the more impressive when tasted alongside a 1995 Dom Oeno and a marvelous (if precocious) 99 Vogue Musigny VV.
