Oscar Quevedo was in London, so we opened some 1958s.

W58, originally ζ = zeta. Red-brown, 20% opaque. Nose bad burnt stink. Palate burnt at start, then intense heat. Then fades leaving sweetness, then nothing.

Warre 1958. Light ruby, brick colour. Alcoholic, pharmacy flavours. Maybe because of the quality of the alcohol, it reminds me all the time a hospital. Very simple and light.

Very light burnished gold; 10% opaque. Powerful rosemary on the nose, more promised oxidation. Unpleasant oxidised, antiseptic palate with the fruit completely lost. Bitter aftertaste, bitter rosemary finish and good length. Served blind, guessed to be Delaforce. Zeta. 77/100. Drunk 03-Jun-14. Decanted 3 hours.
