One of the first 1961 clarets that I tasted and a sublime experience it was too. A beautiful, subtle nose of cedar and leather. Not complex but well-defined and unreservedly "classic". The palate still has firm tannins backed with ample sweet red fruit entwined with an earthy/cigar-box flavour.
94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Depth of flavor makes this firmly textured wine special. It has enticing earthy, tobacco like aromas, ripe fruit flavors, just enough tannin and a lingering finish.
