Description: Consists of 1 Double Magnum, 3L
Score: 98 DC.
"This is almost a sensorial paradox and while I could say the same things about it as I did for vintage 1995, here everything is amplified. It overflows with boldness and unique elegance, stimulation of the palate and intensity. It is almost like smoking a pipe while eating Belgian chocolate. It is polyhedral as few wines are and a glass leaves the memory of a wine with characteristics that are impossible to find in any other wine. And it is just at the beginning of its long life, as demonstrated by a Riserva 1974 described in another Doctor Wine article." Daniele Cernilli, DoctorWine.it, Apr 2014
Provenance: The Multitude Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $13,000
