Ausone

75 DP 0 2 - 695
Tasting Notes for Ausone, 1961:
A ripe, port-like nose of dried fruits, herbs, old tea, and minerals made for an intriguing set of aromatics. In the mouth, the wine reveals more sweetness and fat than one expects from Ausone, but an underlying pruny quality suggested the fruit was more than merely overripe. Hard tannin, acidity, and earthiness were noticeable in the background, but overall this was a good to excellent wine, with its positive attributes outweighing the more troublesome ones.

Haut Brion

75 DP 0 1 - 1950
Tasting Notes for Haut Brion, 1961:
100 points. The 1961 Haut-Brion was pure perfection, with gloriously intense aromas of tobacco, cedar, minerals, and sweet red and black fruits complemented by smoky wood. This has always been a prodigious effort (it was the debut vintage for Jean Delmas). The notes for this wine are taken from the description of Series IV - Flight D of the 1995 tasting conducted in Munich by Helga and Hardy Rodenstock. Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate 2/96.

Montrose

75 DP 0 1 - 335
Tasting Notes for Montrose, 1961:
Tasted 4 Times With Consistent Notes A stunning wine from a superb vintage, the 1961 Montrose is still in need of another 10 years of cellaring. The deep, opaque dark ruby color, the huge bouquet of ripe cassis fruit and mineral scents, the full-bodied, dense, compelling richness and length, plus gobs of tannin, all point to a monumental bottle of wine for drinking during the first 20-30 years of the next century.Wine Advocate # 95 Oct 1994
