A burgundy wine produced in 1964 is a double five, 55 years old, the bottle is actually older than me, really hard to imagine. My experience with very old burgundies like these 55 years old wines has not been great, mostly disappointing, as Pinot Noir has been too fragile a grape to have a longevity. However, the trick was actually provenance, a great provenance normally spoke for itself, and I ended up with a perfect bottle tonight. Bouquet was not very exciting, with hawthorn and some fine oaks. However, a sip and I was totally taken aback by the content; the fruits was so ripe, almost reminiscent to a perfect cherry with perfect ripeness, with a hint of plum fruits, without a trace of tannins. It’s astonishing that a matured burgundy was really beyond description, one has to try it to believe what I said.
