This wine likely represented the last remnants of the older vines, as the vineyard was largely replanted in 1962. In Grands Vins: The Finest Châteaux of Bordeaux and Their Wines, Clive Coates writes of the 1962 vintage: "Medium-full colour. Mature. More interest than the 1964 here. Round, ripe, stylish. Fresh. Medium-full. This is mellow, rich and even fat and concentrated. Still has vigour and life. Better than 1964 and 1966. Good grip. Long. Stylish. Mellow. Very good indeed." (1995) Second Growth. Deuxieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855. Indicative blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 60-70% and Merlot 20-30% with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
