In 2009, I had this again, from our own cellar and for my birthday. It had spent all its life in two very cold cellars and so it had a great level and a film-like deposit on the side of the bottle. Completely deep, dark colour to the rim. The most intoxicating, chocolate liqueur nose, all opulence and luscious blackberries turning to black cherries. An unbelievable sweet candied violets taste. No sign of any physical decline, or volatility. Glorious flavours of a compote of plums. We decanted it half an hour before drinking and, after 40 minutes in the glass, it had a bouquet of sandalwood. What tremendous impact - the most decisive Claret ever. I felt I had never tasted a more exciting wine than this bottle - Mouton 1945 is the 'classic', but this is the most deliriously fantastic. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
