  • Whats not to like? Light bodied and elegant structure yet not lacking presence. Brackish color and fading fruit intertwined with tobacco and earth to make a complete and harmonious unified aroma as opposed to many independently complex components. This didn't feel too old and was exactly what I expect a very old bottle to be like with proper storage. Glad I was able to enjoy this.

  • Top shoulder fill. Morken, halvt gjennomtrukken kork. Mørk rød burgunder farge, klar og lett transparent uten brunskjær. Lukt av friske røde bær, omtrent som i en fersk rød burgunder. I tillegg ett bakteppe av søtlig tobakk, tørket frukt som fiken og dadler, herreværelse/røkjakke, medesinskap, svette og sigarkasse. Snev av aceton, rå sopp og kompostjord etterhvert (1,5t)
    Smak av friske syrlige jordbær, tørket gul frukt, tyggetobakk, paracetamol, kaffe og timian/salvie.
    Veldig ren i munnen med bringebærdrops syre, kjølig og litt spinkel men charmant frukt, støvet men merkbar tannin. Medium lengde.
    Forbausende kvikk 49 åring. Dabbet av mot slutten, men ga drikkeglede over 3 timer

  • What a beautiful wine... I read somewhere, a long time ago, that the '67's seem like lean, long-distance runners. This must be true because even with mid-shoulder fill, this was a brilliant wine. Storage has been almost perfect for decades upon decades. Decanted and enjoyed after about 15+ minutes. Still tasted great after 45-60 mins. Super impressed, absolutely lovely mature claret. Rating for pleasure and joy: 93pts

  • Nose: This was picture perfect mature Bordeaux with cranberries, sandalwood, spice box, cedar notes, tobacco leaf, and some dark red cherries. There is excellent layering and depth with a refined sense.

    Taste: Medium bodied with medium acidity and resolved tannins. The structure is resolved, but also serves to form a base with cranberries, dark red cherries, tobacco leaf, and spice box notes.

    Overall: This was a lovely and mature Bordeaux. It did tail off after 3 hours, but that was just expected. While it was drinking, it was everything that one would want from Bordeaux of this age.

  • The rating reflects experience versus expectations. Was expecting something from completely toasted to vinegar and was pleasantly surprised to taste real fruit and decent balance. Sure the wine had the classic bricking, the nose of a very dusty, mushroom filled farmhouse floor. The wine is most certainly past its prime but remains very drinkable.
