This is a laughably old bottle from a very poor vintage pulled from deep in the bowels of GK's cellar, and yet it was still relatively drinkable. Nose and flavors were washed-out, but showed cedar with vestiges of red fruit, earth, toffee, and tea. An interesting if predictable experience, and we have the comfort of knowing that we're the only people on Planet Earth to sample the '72 Cheval Blanc for lunch today! - HK, GK 2008-01-04
