66 Montrose in magnum

1966 Château Montrose;
(Magnum) A level fill, ruby with thin brick rim. First, slightly off, wondering if it was a bit corked. Later on, leather, black- and redcurrants, anis and prunes. Good acidity, ripe tannins, some metal touch, still felt a bit off, but to good to ignore...... The day after, much more complex and elegant on the nose, all signs of off aromas or cork gone, more leather, prunes, coffee, much more nuanced and rich. More complexity, but the structure started to tire and the tannins seemed a bit dry. Still very drinkable and a good wine. 84
