Soutard 1950 Chateau bottled, Extremely rare, certainly with this filling level.
Belongs with Petrus, Vieux Chateau Certan, Le Gay and several others to the best 1950 wines. Vertical Tasting of Château Soutard 1950-1989 Joakim Stockholm Sweden 27 may 2012. 1950 Château Soutard
This was a real revelation! Not one over-the-hill sign presence. Just fine fruit, a lovely maturity and a great drinkability! The nose is deep, fine and mature (!) with lovely notes of dark plums, rosehips, dried herbs and some coffe notes. Very fine.
The taste is tight, mature but very fresh with lots of red currants, dried plums, chocolate and warm earth. A long, fine finish. A great example of the longevity of Soutard. The other, who tasted double blind, guessed it to be from the 70´s...
Grand Corbin (Despagne) 1955.
Excelent level for age marked with strip of white paper.
