fine colour; a faint hint of the standard "cigarbox" nose with some fruits; the red fruits came through on the palate but did not last long; there was some dryness; clearly it was past its peak Garret's note: very light robe; a touch of clove on the nose; very dry, tannins gone, dried fruit but some cherry on the palate and a mellow finish

Do they still make 'em like this? Auction bottle. Deeply held aromas released in the glass: red fruits, earthy loam, licorice, and forest. Full bodied, vigorous, bright and very long. Excellent paired with morels in sauce, and a rare hangar steak. This 70 is at a lofty and extended peak now, with a 60 year lifespan. Fantastic.

decanted and drank over the night. cork saturated but in one piece and level at top shoulder. colour: garnet core with tawny rim. young looking considering its nearly 40 years old. nose: saddle leather and tobacco. very nice classic old claret. plum? black berries coming through with time. taste: great acidity and persistent finish. this is mature now and is lovely to drink. red cherry core with a slight taste of ginger on the finish? I like this a lot.

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.
