Probably bottled in 74.

Red-brown colour with a strong green rim. Elegant, but concentrated Nose, multilayered. Sllightly sweet, very good balancing acidity, Honey, Karamell. The palate is far more intense and complex than the nose reveals at this stage. Very deep and strong with milk-chocolate, hints of mints, strong honey. Long, but elegant aftertaste. Outstanding, reminds me stylewise a lot on the late bottles VV and the 1900. 19

I agree totally, thanks for sharing!
