La Conseillante

75 IB 0 2 - 650
Tasting Notes for La Conseillante, 1961:
I had an excellent bottle of the 1964 La Conseillante in the late eighties that proved to be better than I indicated in my tasting notes in the first edition of this book. Medium ruby, with some amber at the edge, this wine has a sensational nose of smoky, almost buttery, nutty, superripe, plummy fruit and herbs. In the mouth, it is round, generous, even opulent, with a great deal of concentration, and a long, alcoholic finish. By the standards of the chateau, this is a larger-framed, more muscular wine than usual. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 11/89.

Vieux Chateau Certan

75 IB 0 1 - 575
Tasting Notes for Vieux Chateau Certan, 1961:
This wine has gotten mixed reviews in my notes. Several years ago it was big and powerful, but coarse, dumb, and totally lacking in finesse. At a vertical tasting of Vieux-Chateau-Certan, it was still a little rough around the edges, but displayed rich, deep, youthfully scented fruit, full body, plenty of weight and power, and impressive length. The score reflects the better effort. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 5/83. Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1 Jan 1998
