Fake bottle. No vintage on cork. TCA anyway so couldn't tell how it was. A shame.

This was off the charts. I was amazed at the freshness of the fruit in the palate after 53 years!

I think Margaux are meant to be opened earlier. However, the color is still a pale light red with some browning. The taste isn’t quite there so it is obviously on the downslope, but it’s still drinkable.

1961 vintage. Medium ruby hue. Wood, earth, cedar wood - not a lot of fruit left. Some smokey notes. Mushroom. Ok the palate, medium body and acidity, medium concentration. There's tannins for sure - touch rough. Medium finish. Not my favourite of the trio of '61 Bordeaux.

Mature with all the components in place. Velvety tannins with very nice fruit and autumn notes. 1961 vintage.
