"I have always been a huge fan of this wine, with incredible depth and richness of character. Dried meat, game, berry, spice, asphalt and tar. Full body with layers of ripe tannins and spice. It goes on for minutes on the finish. This is a fabulously spicy with black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, black truffles, sous bois and licorice. Decant two or three hours before serving. Purity and balance. This is the legendary 1961 again." JamesSuckling.com, December 15th, 2014
Provenance: The Highlands Cellar
Notes: 2.5cm, lightly corroded capsule, nicked label, lightly mold stained label.
