FATHER AND SON
I intentionally served these two different vintages blind, right next to each other. My guests were all spot on, claiming that they’re father and son relationship, as the taste was almost identical! Needless to say the 1959 is more mellow and pleasant, while the 2000 was still young and aggressive, even a 2 hour decant didn’t mellow it down enough. I always enjoy the reaction from aghasted audiences who thought the 59 was way too young. At 58 years old, who would still claim youthfulness?
