    Quite faded, I think the bottle not the wine

    December 4, 2021 - OLD Birthday Wines (a few days belated) (Chez S1): Saturated cork easily extracted with Durand. The nose is reticent at first bit evolves in the glass. Dark cassis and hints of red cherry dominate, with tertiary levels of black licorice, fresh green herbs, cinnamon, and tobacco, enveloped in powerful but balanced tannins. This wine still has quite a bit of life remaining.

    November 5, 2021 - Bright ruby, bright elegant palate, red fruits, raspberries. Tertiary leather is a big but not overpowering presence. Dried rose petal nose. Acidity high, tannins still providing grip. Dryish medium length finish. Drink now but no sign of this being past its best.

    November 5, 2021 - Bought at Christies auction, came without label but cork clearly showed 1961. Level into shoulder and clear evidence of seepage. Tired, no vigor, lean with porty finish. Not a good bottle
