|Chateau/Producer:||Falletto Di Bruno Giaccsa|
|Notes:||Dark garnet in color, thick legs, nose of cherries, dust, lead pencil, mimeograph ink, and prunes. Big nose and huge finish, even after all this time. Spectacular.|
|Wine Name:||Directors Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Notes:||Beet red or dark, with limited legs, nose of astringent traces of ink. The big problem with this wine is the lack of tannins and structure. Good quality grapes without any substance behind them is a waste.|
|Wine Name:||Puiseguin Saint Emilion|
|Notes:||Very dark red with beef blood edges; huge legs; explosive nose of blackberry and dark fruits with a hint of tar. Nice finish; nice balance. A very gorgeous and silky wine that his holding up magnificently.|
|Notes:||Color is beet red with amber edges, initial nose of leather, watermelon rind, rust, minerals, diaper, giving way to red currants and violets. Medium to light-bodied. Most of the tannins have given way to a pungent and fruity wine that is most likely past its prime right now... it's possible with more aging something else may come out of it. There is some structure there but it's hiding. Some finish too. This might be a wine I'd wished I'd opened in another 20 years.|
|AOC:||Grand Cru Classe|
|Notes:||Ruby red to amber and watermelon at the edges; still a tremendous amount of richness of color given this wine's 50 (FIFTY) years of age. Not very noticeable legs. |
Nose of peat, plums, prunes and minerals... gave way to a burst of clean, fresh vanilla oak, from there it morphed into leather and then an incredible explosion of violets that went on and on. Extremely floral and pleasing.
Medium to light-bodied with an incredible finish. The structure was starting to wain - this wine was undoubtedly very well-kept and it shows. The nose contains every last hint of all its glory, but on the tongue it showed a slight imbalance of acidity and oxidation. Not so much as to take away from the overall experience. This was a magnificent bottle that I would have drank ten times the quantity of had it been available.
