we had the following that night
La Lagune, Trotanoy, Pichon Lalande, haut Brion and the Montrose. I do not recall any herbaceous notes for these, some barnyard funk, which is what you might be referring to but if there was any it blew off after some time in the glass.
We had the '78 Pichon Lalande on my wife's 31st birthday, and when opened, the nose was dreadful. All kinds of herbaceous notes, and I figured the wine was toast. But a 1/2 hour later the wine was beautiful, but only stayed there for about an hour before it started to fall off. Needless to say, our friends didn't let it fall off, and it was gone shortly after. I'll have to see if I put notes in CellarTracker. -mJ
