    Bottle (1)
    "The best bottle of the '78 that I have ever had with an absolutely stunningly complex nose of virtually every spice imaginable framed in earth and strong secondary aromas leads to full-bodied, rich, pure and still intense flavors that deliver fantastic depth and length. There is real lift and vibrancy here with knockout intensity and this wine has arrived at its apogee. Two other recent bottles however have suggested that the beginning of the end has arrived as there is the slightest hint of dryness on the finish though it is largely buffered by the impressive amounts of velvet. Classy and refined in every sense and while this is in no danger of cracking up anytime soon, I would begin looking for reasons to drink this over the next decade. Consistent notes." (96pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #17, Jan 2005)
