...Although the 1959 was outstanding it seemed less concentrated more disjointed and more evolved than the 1961 displaying a more roasted aromatic profile and less sweetness and unctuosity than previous bottles.

Vinous but on the lean side with a slight hardness. A less-than-stellar bottle that losing its fruit. ($1395-$1475): Old aromas of plum marzipan and nutty oak. Lovely sweetness and mellow fruit enlivened by superb vinosity. Complicating note of tobacco. Very much an old wine but still with considerable appeal and length if a trace of finishing dryness. But not a great bottle of this wine which I've scored in the recent past as high as 98 points.
