2009 Vintage Tasted: Apr 2020
Kräftiges Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, dezenter Ockerrand. Zart tabakig unterlegte dunkle Waldbeeren, aber auch rote Frucht, angenehme Edelholznoten, Tabak und Velours, zart nach Nougat, braucht einige Luft. Saftig und extraktsüß, Nuancen von Kirschen, seidige Tannine, mineralisch-salzig im Abgang, sehr harmonisch, majestätischer Stil mit großem Potenzial.
1966 Vintage Tasted: Jan 2017
Mittleres Karmingranat, Ockerreflexe, breite Randaufhellung. Nuancen von eingelegten Kirschen, rotes Waldbeerkonfit, Nuancen von Kräutern, getrockneter Dille, etwas Karamell. Süß, saftig, und elegant am Gaumen, weiche samtige Tannine, gute Säurestruktur, lange anhaltend, feine Extraktsüße im Abgang, Noten von Dörrpflaumen im Finale. - Peter Moser
1966 Vintage Tasted: Feb 2016
The first nuances of garnet have finally begun to appear in the wine’s almost impenetrable red color. The aromas have become even more complex and are not easy to distinguish completely. Notes of red berries are so intense they seem to attack your nostrils while other clear scents include those of tea leaves, antique leather, licorice and rhubarb accompanied by an infinite number nuances. The mouthfeel is soft yet not yielding, rich in texture with amazing balances between the acidity, tannins and sugar component. Once again the length is infinite. The older the wine gets the more its sensations become inimitable.
1970 Vintage Tasted: Feb 2016
The color is so intact it appears embalmed, a dark, intense and deep red. The intensity of the aromas seems amplified compared to previous vintages and it is almost as if the already high heights achieved have been multiplied. There are now notes of graphite together with the typical ones of tobacco and chocolate. Overall, the variety of sensations is extraordinary, always changing and never tame, in this case with those of cloves joining the mineral scents and hints of cinnamon. The texture and force of the mouthfeel make it stinging with a bold and caressing body and sublime elegance.
1986 Vintage Tasted: Feb 2016
Here again the color is untamed, without any concessions. The aromas are perfectly developed with those of spice playing a leading role. The tension of the bouquet intensifies with breathing, creating a kaleidoscope of sensations with notes of fine leather, smokiness and dark chocolate followed by those of garrigue, cinchona and juniper. The mouthfeel has a bold, tannic texture although the sugar element makes it almost rounded. Majestic and austere, this vintage demonstrates how this incredible wine can evolve over the years.
1994 Vintage Tasted: Feb 2016
The color is an extraordinarily intense, full and bright red rarely found in a wine over 20 years old. The bouquet is an explosion of scents of blueberry and blackberry gelatin that is never tame while with adequate breathing emerge notes of spice and dark chocolate that I have never found in any other wine. The balsamic component plays a key role in this giant. The mouthfeel is distinguished by its harmony and vigor, balance and stimulation. The endless and eternal length is amazing.
1998 Vintage Tasted: Feb 2016
A luminous and hypnotic fiery-red color with intense aromas of blueberry, oriental spice and even minerals. This before breathing brings out unexpected scents of flint, prune jam and a smoky hint. The mouthfeel is fresh and upheld by a bold and structured body offering unbridled pleasure. A magnificent wine that will last 100 years. The intense aromatic persistence is eternal.
1991 Vintage Tasted: Feb 2016
The color is an unusual, bright and robust red while the aromas are ethereal and non-aggressive. The complex bouquet varies between scents of ripe, red fruit and notes of blond tobacco and freshly ground black pepper. The mouthfeel is elegant and austere with an uncommon expressive force and vigorous yet well-integrated tannins in a context of rare perfection. The balsamic after-aroma is formidable. This vintage spent 16 years aging in barrels but this is not even minimally noticeable and the wine is one of the most balanced I have ever tasted.
2000 Vintage Tasted: Feb 2016
Its luminous, red color reveals its brash youth through a distinct concentration. The initial aromas are of leather and rolling tobacco that with breathing are followed by stimulating notes of spice and ripe fruit. The mouthfeel is bold yet elegant with a dynamic balance difficult to match. The length is epic.
1994 Vintage Tasted: Jan 2016
Kräftiges Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, dezenter Ockerrand. Feine Kräuterwürze mischt sich mit Aromen von dunklen Beeren, Nougat, ätherischen Anklängen, zart nach Cassis, ungemein facettenreich. Am Gaumen stoffig, dunkle Schokolade und feines Holzextrakt, Nuancen von Kakao, extraktsüß und mineralisch, zitronige Nuancen, enorm lange anhaltend, große weitere Zukunftsperspektiven.
1998 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Vielleicht der größte Único der jüngeren Geschichte: Kräftiges Rubingranat, dezenter Wasserrand. Dunkle Beeren, frische Kirschen, zarte Selchnoten, ein Hauch von Hagebutten, mit deutlichen Röstanklängen unterlegt. Auch am Gaumen noch geprägt von starken Röstaromen, komplex und mit süßer Frucht ausgestattet, ein echter Kraftlackel, zeigt enorme Länge, braucht definitiv noch seine Zeit, angenehmer Schokonachhall. (Lagern +40)
1962 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013

(87.600 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +15)
1987 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Mittleres Karmingranat, zarter Ockerrand. Feinfruchtiges Bukett, angenehmer Anklang von Herzkirschen, ein Hauch von kandierten Veilchen, mit dezenter Holzwürze unterlegt. Kraftvoll, stoffig und komplex, zart pfeffrige Würze, kraftvolle, überaus präsente Tannine, zartes Waldbeerenkonfit im Abgang, noch sehr jugendlich, braucht noch einige Zeit, ist noch immer nicht ganz entfaltet, großes Zukunftspotenzial. Überzeugender, großer, eigenständiger Único. (79.500 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +30)
1970 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Kräftiges Rubingranat, breite Randaufhellung. Feine dunkle Beerenfrucht, zarte florale Nuancen, ein Hauch von Heidelbeeren. Saftig, elegant, zeigt eine süße Frucht, harmonischer Körper, feine Tannine, finessenreich strukturiert, mineralischer Touch, salzige Noten, tolle Länge, verfügt über sehr gutes weiteres Potenzial, bietet großen Trinkgenuss. (94.500 Flaschen; Trinken/lagern +20)
1981 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Mittleres Rubingranat, breite Randaufhellung. Schwarze Beerenfrucht, mit zarten Cassisanklängen unterlegt, der Cabernet-Sauvigon-Anteil ist gut spürbar. Stoffig, zeigt ein festes Rückgrat, wirkt am Gaumen fast eine Spur rustikal, angenehme Süße im Abgang, ein robuster, guter Speisenbegleiter, ein Langstreckenläufer mit viel Substanz, zart nussiger Touch im Finish. Ein großer Único, der noch ein langes Leben vor sich hat. (77.092 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +30)
1999 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarter Wasserrand. Einladendes Bukett, ein Hauch von Lakritze, Orangenzesten, florale Nuancen, schwarze Beeren, mit Edelholzwürze unterlegt. Am Gaumen sehr kraftvoll und stoffig, Extraktsüße, kompakte Textur, gut eingebundene Tannine, feiner Schokoladetouch im Abgang, bleibt sehr lange haften, ein großes Versprechen für die Zukunft. Wer diesen Wein bereits öffnet, bringt sich um einiges Vergnügen. (96.159 Flaschen; lagern +40)
1982 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarter Ockerrand. Süße Beerenfrucht, ein Hauch von Schokotrüffeln, reife Pflaumen, wird mit Luft zart blättrig. Stoffig, reife Fruchtanklänge, süße Kirschen, frisch strukturiert, zart rotbeerig im Nachhall, ein finessenreicher Speisenbegleiter mit guter Zukunft, besitzt Potenzial für viele Jahre. (81.500 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +30)
1961 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013

(50.200 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +20)
1979 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013

Saftig, elegant, besitzt eine feine Extraktsüße, perfekt eingebundene Tannine, frisch strukturiert, zeigt sich jugendlich, lange anhaltend, feine Mineralik im Nachhall, ein hocheleganter Speisenbegleiter. (2200 Magnums; trinken/lagern +30)
1965 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Relativ dunkles Rubingranat, schwarzer Farbkern, Orangerand. In der Nase eine Mischung aus Dörrobst und nussigen Klängen, weist klare Madeira-Nuancen auf, trotz der eindeutigen Oxidation noch recht eindrucksvoll. Am Gaumen süß, feiner würziger Balsamico-Touch, wirkt wie ein Oloroso-Sherry, gute Länge, dezente Bitternote im Nachhall, Edelschokolade im Nachhall. Ein Zeugnis der einstigen Größe dieses Weines, diese Flasche war wohl alles andere als perfekt, fand aber bei manchem Verkoster dennoch Anklang. (Trinken)
2000 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Kräftiges Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, breiterer Wasserrand. Sehr attraktives klassisches Bukett mit zartem Cabernet-Touch, florale Nuancen, Cassis und Lakritze, sehr facettenreich und ausdrucksstark. Saftig, mit eleganter Textur, schwarze Waldbeerfrucht, feste, aber sehr feine Tannine, zarte Würze im Abgang, mineralisch und lange anhaltend, schokoladiger Touch, bereits sehr verführerisch. (108.536 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +35)
1991 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Kräftiges Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, Wasserrand. Schwarzes Beerenkonfit, unterlegt mit feiner Kräuterwürze und Anklängen von Zigarrentabak, mit Luft florale Nuancen und etwas Cassis. Saftig, elegante Textur, rund und harmonisch, ein sehr harmonischer Único, komplex und anhaltend, finessenreich strukturiert, hat seine erste Trinkreife erreicht, wird sich nun auf diesem hohen Niveau für Jahre halten, mineralischer Nachhall. (98.250 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +25)
1996 Vintage Tasted: Jul 2013
Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarter Ockerrand. Schwarze Waldbeerenfrucht, Brombeerfrucht, angenehme Kräuternote. Am Gaumen stoffig und komplex, angenehme Zwetschkenfrucht, ausgestattet mit präsenten Tanninen, mineralischer Abgang, extraktsüßes Finale und tolle aromatische Länge. Dieser Único ist definitiv bereits gut antrinkbar, verfügt aber über gute Reserven. (99.480 Flaschen; trinken/lagern +25)
