To be honest, I'm not that impressed with Feytit-Clinet, it's a little to "made" for me. Clos du Clocher on the other hand I'm very fond of.

I have had the 1964 a few times and it's in no decline in my book. Depending of course always on provenance, but also on your taste. One of the bottles needed a few hours to open actually.

Both the 95 and 96 are young and very elegant wines, and not at all in any decline. I've had the 1983 Palmer several times and for me this was a typical bottle, fruity but lacks complexity and dimension. I've had it side by side with the 83 Ch. Margaux twice now and it's no match for the 83 Ch. Marg...
