Mission Haut Brion, La Bordeaux Blend 1970
treasure after a comedy of errors

With my previous dissapointments with younger vintages, I decided on this one even though it showed some sepage,but fill at base of neck.  Knew I might be in trouble after the capsule was challenging, but cleaned it up and attempted cork removal.  The cork fell apart, so after gaining access to contents I drianed into a coffee filter to fill a caraf.  Could not wait for my first taste to see if the wine was corked.

WOW!!!  Nice, mild, with a long finish. Wish I had a case.  Now I wonder what  it will be like in an hour or so after possibly opening up more.
