1966 Mommesin Clos de Tart

A friend came with this bottle to what should have been a regular lunch…

The cork came out breaking in pieces, but we managed to pull it out without sending anything in the bottle. The wine colo ris quite brownish, about the same color as old leather. The nose is quite funky at the start, but only few minutes later it became to be impressive and so charming. Just a touch of fruit left, some spices and the feel of the opening of an old wooden box that kept treasures for years. The mouth feel is in the same way, with dry leaves, brown tea, salted sweet caramel, a touch of fruit, lots of finesse and lenght. It even went better as the time went on until the last sip. Paired very well the my meal (veal filet with a sauce that reminds me some flavors of the wine). Superb.
