    January 2, 2020 - Wine was properly stored from purchase in the early 1970's from Andre Tchelistcheff until consumed.
    Initial bottle stink, blew off after about 10 minutes. Beautiful old Bordeaux-style bouquet. Cassis. Cherries. Berries. Caramel. Apricot. Walnuts. Frais-des-bois. Distinct coconut.
    Amazing for a 53 year old wine. Still has style, ability to please. A real tribute to Tchelistcheff.

    November 14, 2016 - Opened this for my 50th birthday. Nice dark color with some bricking around the edge, good dark fruit on the nose and the palate upon opening, tasted much younger than a 50 year old bottle. At the half hour mark it started to get raisiny and almost port like but without the alcohol or heat. It was amazing tasting the transformation and enjoyable with a perfectly prepared ribeye. I would caution against holding this wine for much longer if you still want to taste the fruit of Napa in the 60's.

    July 20, 2012 - Nose much younger with cassis, tobacco. On the palate slightly more tired with underwood, some red fruit, smoke.

    March 16, 2012 - BV Georges de Latour Private Reserve Vertical Tasting: Light ruby colored core, bricking.

    Very pronounce nose of sweet carmel, sherry reduction, slightly oxidize along with nutty, forest floor with floral qualities. Slight tannins still on the palate along with some sour cherry on the back end. Nice acidity.

    With a hour plus in the glass and this is still rocking, wow what a bottle. Keeps opening up and adding more nuances.

    SS 93pts.

    January 28, 2012 - Acker Merrall Second Chicago Auction (Elysian Hotel - Chicago IL): Aromas are mostly mature and earthy with some black cherry and currant in background. Big structured and full bodied on palate. Still nicely tannic, with long and powerful finish.
