1953 Philipponnat Clos des Goisses Magnum$4,999.99
Richard Juhlin 98pts Disgorged June 2008. One of the absolutely last magnums left in the world. Naturally direct from the house and disgorged two months prior to my tasting. One is met directly by an unprecedented unique and fascinating aromatic spectrum, spanning such wildly distinct and unexpected aromas as cedar, resin, eucalyptus, grilled steak, grass, gooseberry, and gunpowder! After a time in the glass, all three wines from the 1950s resembled each other, with a fabulously euphoric perfumed scent that is much like passion fruit. The taste is perhaps the richest and most charming of the three in this unbeaten tasting trio.
