1961 Chateau la Gaffaliere-Nandes

Post by AHB » 11:29 Mon 28 Dec 2015

Deep red with a slight hint of brown on the rim. A little closed on the nose, showing little other than some dirty black cherry. In the mouth this brings fruit and powerful tannins; brooding and powerful with a perfect level of maturity. Delicious finish. A lovely mature St Emilion claret. 91/100. 16-Dec-15. Decanted 1 hour.

Drunk at Lunch at Otto's on Wednesday 16 December 2015.
