1921 Chateau Haut Brion, La-Cote, Bordeaux, France
1949 Chateau Cheval Blanc, 1er Grand Cru Classe, Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, France
“RP 96-100: I have rated the 1949 Cheval Blanc as high as 100, but more consistently in the mid to upper 90s. It is one of the great Cheval Blancs – not as port-like and syrupy as the 1947, but more classically rendered. It is an unbelievably rich, sweet, expansive, full-bodied style of Cheval Blanc with enormous quantities of glycerin, fruit, alcohol, and extract”.
1950 Chateau Palmer, Margaux, Medoc, Bordeaux, France
“CT94, VINOGUSTO: Finesse and elegance, typical of the great wines of Margaux, are the permanent trademarks of Château Palmer, characterized by the softness and refinement of silk, the warmth of velvet, and the leather of noblesse. The subtle balance between aromatic richness and powerful yet always restrained tannins makes Palmer a wine of incomparable charm, even when very young. Its length leaves the persistent memory of a heady mix of sensations and emotions”.
1955 Chateau La Conseillante, Pomerol, Bordeaux, France
Broadbent****: “A very good, somewhat underestimated yet useful vintage, now undeservingly neglected”.
Bordeaux To Finish
1938 Chateau D’Yquem, Luc Saluces, Sauternes, Bordeaux, France
“WS95: A nice surprise. This Yquem comes from what’s considered an average vintage, but it is very exciting, classy, creamy and sweet in a refined way. Offers lively botrytized, dried fruit intensity along with mineral, flint and lemony-tropical complexity”.
