A couple of Cellartracker notes:

12/5/2016 - EIRIKM WROTE:
Seemed a bit tired when opened, but some air and food worked wonders. Mature claret, not overly complex, but clean, lean and classic in its expression of time and place.

9/5/2015 - JONNY616 LIKES THIS WINE: 88 Points
Another good bottle from the 70's. Opened and decanted 1 hour prior. Cork broke so decanted through a strainer. Very unpleasant nose on decanting, but this had gone by the time we drank it. Colour still bright in the centre and brick red at the rim. Mature Bordeaux flavour with good length.
