Tasting Notes

A top performer from a five star vintage according to Decanter! 1961 is described as "a classic vintage, producing concentrated yet finely-balanced claret" by Decanter, who writes that "the outstanding feature of this vintage was its consistency across the board, from first growths to Crus Bourgeois...On the left bank every appellation produced some outstanding examples. The wines were in most cases very attractive drinking by the end of the first decade, because of their fine harmony and depths of flavour and have lasted splendidly. The front runners are Latour, Mouton, and Palmer. Then come Haut Brion, La Mission, Margaux, Leoville-Las-Cases, Cos d'Estournel, Calon-Segur, Gruaud-Larose, Lynch-Bages, Leoville-Barton, Leoville-Poyferre, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Brane-Cantenac, Haut-Bailly and Pape-Clement. Lafite shows big bottle variations. But second-line crus like Batailley and Croizet-Bages were also excellent."
