(From 2011 Vintage) Extremely floral and fruity with hints of lilacs and crushed fruit. Full body with refined tannins integrated with a solid core of fruit, and a rich, round texture. This is lightly sweet and follows through to a long, long finish.
Along with 1945 and 1977, this Vintage is a true classic amongst great wines. Although much of the 1963 has already been drunk, it has real backbone, which will hold it for many years yet.
