floral and toasty nose. surprisingly mature.

Flight 2 (3 notes)

Red
1967 Château Palmer France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux
90 points
didn't enjoy the dusty and savoury nose. palate surprisingly robust. later told it's from ex-chateau. normal bottles prob over hill.
Red
1967 Pétrus France, Bordeaux, Libournais, Pomerol
91 points
complex and rustic nose, with a hint of mint. tasted rather left bank. solid showing but lacks excitement.
Red
1967 Château Trotanoy France, Bordeaux, Libournais, Pomerol
94 points
best showing among the 67s (Petrus and Palmer). good balance with some good notes of black fruits and coffee.

decanted for an hour. lovely aroma with sweet finish. lost a bit of power but always a treat.

flawed
sadly corked.

smooth and velvety with lovely notes of tobacco.
Red
1982 Château Lynch-Bages France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac
97 points
decanted for an hour. absolute revelation. everything you want from a claret drinking at its peak. lovely sweetness and harmony - hard to believe it's not from Pomerol.

aromatic sweet forest fruits. faded ever so slightly in the glass after a while.
