    "Stupendous clarity on the nose; still astonishingly fresh. Ripe, soft red fruit - raspberry, redcurrant, sweet spice and the most seductive mélange of chocolate, violet, coffee, licorice, and earth. Utterly compelling - so layered and complex, so interesting. Dry, very lengthy (but with the slightest metallic, rusty tang on the finish). All the rest of it is in tremendous condition, the freshness is dumbfounding, the quality of the fruit is A1, the layers and grace and charm all brilliant. It's the nose that is most memorable though, giving the ideal expression of the uniqueness of terroir and maturity." (19pts RH, July 2009)

    "Still a spectacular wine, the 1961 defies mortality... The color is a dark garnet with orange/amber at the edge. The profound bouquet has the magnetic allure that leaves great Bordeaux unmatched for complexity. Sweet notes of dried fruits, herbs, tobacco, smoke, and roasted meats are followed by an opulently-textured, thick, nearly viscous wine with high glycerin, ripe, jammy fruit, and an intoxicating combination of glycerin, extract, and suppleness. The wine holds in the glass without cracking up, and has a good 40-45 second finish." (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #129, June 2000)
