    May 21, 2018 - Excellent, drinking very well. As we also had a Chateau Montrose from 1959, it really made me realize how the notion of "you can hold this bottle for 10 more years" is a bit of a misdirection. Sure, you COULD hold this bottle for longer, but if it's drinking well, are the incremental gains of holding off really worth it? I would say, in general, no. Drink up, friends.
