This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1961 Lynch-Bages

Dinner at Paris 1930 in Taipei.

1961 Lynch-Bages - opened and decanted into a "duck" decanter, and breathed for about 45 minutes before we started drinking.  Clearly this was less spectacular than the Ducru because of breathing time.  But it was still good.  Color was sufficiently deep ruby.  Classic nose of cassis, a bit of smoke, earthy, medium sweet.  Finish not as long as Ducru.  Maybe Parker was right about reaching the end of maturity plateau.  We finished this about 3 hours after we opened it.

TWD 28,000 on the list.
