I tasted this wine with Michel Delon after I told him I had never had a great bottle of the 1961. After tasting it again, my original assessment remains unchanged. The wine reveals an austerity and under-ripeness that is reminiscent of the 1970. This fully mature Las Cases displays a garnet color with considerable amber at the edge, and a spicy, earthy, tobacco, and herb-scented nose. Some sweetness in the attack fades quickly to reveal a medium-bodied, tannic, compact wine that is good, but uninspiring. It will keep for another 10 years, but don't expect any miracles to develop.
