    March 24, 2021 - Very difficult and old cork, had to strain and decant. Initially very tannic and almost irony with loads of Forrest floor. But it mellowed over celebratory Celeste to velvety tannins and a little dried cherry.

    May 9, 2017 - Still in very good shape. Fruit (brambly red fruit, stewed plum) on the wane but structurally no problems: surprisingly good body. Probably another decade still in it. Fun to try, open a bottle if you have one.

    October 23, 2016 - Trengte 2 timer i åpen flaske før den åpnet seg. Aroma med tydelig modent preg av morkent treverk, tjære, blyant, kirebær. I munnen var den helt stum og kun fremtredende syre/tannin, men med luft så åpnet den seg. Også her var det elementer av morkent treverk og blyant som var tydeligst. Den har litt av det strenge 75 preget og medium frukt som er på vikende front. Ok lengde. Fungert greit til indrefillet av elg. Har kun blitt bedre de 4 timene det tok før flasken var tom. Kjøper uansett ikke mer av denne..

    May 23, 2016 - Color is youthful.
    Lot's of tobacco and some dark cherry notes in a very composed nose.
    Fruit is dried out with residual dried cherry.
    Best 40 year old wine I've had all decade!

    January 24, 2016 - We did a vertical tasting of this 1975, along with a 1982 and a 1996. the `75 was the star. Opened in the cellar two hours before tasting, and brought out to warm up a bit 45 minutes before tasting. Beautiful cherry notes, did not taste faded at all. A great experience.
