Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition, The Wine Advocate

This wine has been fully mature since the early seventies, and has always represented one of the best examples of this estate's style. It is consistently elegant, with Pape-Clement's telltale bouquet of smoky tobacco and earthy, cedary, currant fruit. Since the late seventies, the 1966 has ever-so-slowly begun to lose some intensity and take on more amber color. The wine is still very good, but the acidity and tannins are more noticeable in the finish, and the fruit is less intense. This was once a beautiful, elegant wine that is now beginning to decline.
