1967 Bordeaux is much maligned, but like many things from the vintage, this wine over-delivered. Nobody could ever call it “over the hill”, and aromatically it is amazing with bright fruit and Sandalwood notes combined with the mildly sour aromas of aged Bordeaux. The wine lacks weight on the palate, though, and I suspect it always has. The label says “14%”, but I’d bet it’s 13, at most, from this notoriously un-ripe vintage.

Wow, what an amazing bottle @ 50yr old -- still going strong! Deep burgundy, with a slight brown tinge. Damp leather, cherry, moss, forest floor, mellow potpourri. Old old old, smells like a cobweb encrusted library... but in a good way

I enjoyed this wine. It held up very well. It had a very strong odor but tasted very good.
