Old Labels #1

I used to remove labels from the bottles..and paste them into a scrapbook with tasting notes alongside.I decided to stop in 1992 after 15 years of bathtubs full of swimming bottles etc..
I will add some of these old labels every so often..and a small tasting note made at the time.

Domaine de Chevalier Graves 1950 Bordeaux
Drank on 6th September 1990
1950 was not a good year in Bordeaux.

Pomerol and Graves made decent wines though.
Lovely nose which developed in glass...gravely..typical Graves;
soft entry with a dryness and then immense length of flavour.
Superb condition at the time.

Points 18.5
