Wine Advocate | Rating: 90This wine remains at its plateau of maturity, with greater holding power than the 1970. There is a lot to be said for the 1968, a fascinatingly perfumed, spicy, richly fruity wine with full body, outstanding concentration, and wonderful freshness and length. Pristinely stored bottles should drink well for another 10-15 years.Author: Robert Parker
