Lusciously textured, with smoky, licorice tinged, fresh, sweet, ripe, black cherry and chocolate flavors from start to finish. A few more years will add more secondary nuance and softness. This was surprisingly good. 91 Points

1955 Château Cap de Mourlin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 80

On the one hand, the wine has clearly faded, with high levels of acidity and not a lot of fruit. But there is enough there, there to make it at least interesting. On the other hand, considering that the wine comes from moderate terroir made by a chateau that is not known for making seriously age-worthy wines, as this is more than 60 years old, this was an amazing bottle of wine making it a treat to experience. 80 Points
