In 2016 from double magnum, it was beside the 1959 in the same format, a rare occurrence. The 1959 was richer, thicker and more mouthfilling, but the 1961 revels in scent, sweetness and elegance, with a spiciness that is intriguing and a gentleness now that lingers long on the palate. The intensity is in the persistence, the breed in the terroir. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
