Tasted On 10/11/2013

Very top shoulder fill, no signs of past seepage but the cork was extra dry and had to be ultimately pushed inside the bottle. No apparent flaws on the nose at opening. Cloudy and hazy in appearance with a dark brick red core thinning out slightly towards an orange hazy rim, overall impressive for a wine 55 years old. After one hour in a decanter the nose is pleasant, dried roses, dusty red-berry fruit, hints of dry forest floor. You can tell this had masses of ripe fruit when it was young, it still does but the fruit is stewed and slightly dried out but still pleasant . There is an unusual sweetness to this wine mid palate. Moderate acidity with a slight grip of tannin on the back end. The finish is commendable and by no means short. This must have been a monster when young, a tribute to the 1959' vintage. Is still delivers drinking pleasure (Cru Bourgeois Exceptional) Drink Up!!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
