1961 Chateau Belloy

A wonderful mature red colour. Mature on the nose, aptly described by JDAW as hinting at anchovies, mixed with plums and boot polish. Delicious cherry fruit on the palate accompanied by powerful tannins - the combination being mouthfilling and rich. The richness carries through to the aftertaste and finish. This is a superb bottle. Thank you Wolfgang. 97/100. 16-Dec-15. Decanted 1 hour.
