Average critic rating : 54.5 points



Tasted 5 Times With Inconsistent Notes||The 1961 possesses a huge nose of coffee, sweet, jammy, black fruits, buttered nuts, and truffles. The syrupy texture, and fabulous concentration, viscosity, and richness were unbelievable. Given its port-like richness, this full-bodied, massively endowed, fully mature wine is reminiscent of the great 1947. Interestingly, Madame Ducasse told me that two-thirds of the vineyard was replanted in 1957, so 66% of the blend is from 3-year old vines! Readers who are fortunate enough to have bottles of this nectar should plan on drinking it over the next 10-15 years. Wine Advocate.October, 1994
