1945

WINE RATER CLARET

1945 Chateau Talbot                  Drunk 1987   1      N   D     +20y    4.75/5  Beautiful.

1945 Chateau Gruaud-Larose               1987   1      N   D     +20y    4.75/5

 

1947 Chateau Cheval-Blanc     1988  1/2   N   D     +30y    5/5  Perfection, nearly port-like, rich, luscious, 90s finish and balanced perfectly.  Atypical for this Chateau, but possibly the best wine I ever tasted and hence the benchmark for perfection.
