This 59 reminds me why this vintage might be better than 61 albeit I'm drinking less top 61's because the book tells me to lay away still the very top producers. But 59 in Lafite, Margaux, now HB better than 61. Latour and Mouton spectacular in 59 and maybe 61 will outlive but only time will tell. This was simply myriad of the finest moments one can expect from a rare old bottle at its peak!

Wow....this 59 sang and sang...changed every time I picked up the glass and sniff it! Glorious evolvement and graceful yet plenty of grip. I can't wait to try another soon!

Very interesting to see this evolve in the glass / decanter and open up beautifully.
