Opened up clearly a nice wine, with a density the others did not have, of course with the benefit of another decade less aging, but had a strange moth ball nose that also blew off with time. Cork had crumbled so we were a bit concerned. having said that, while lacking some of the elegance of the others, this wine performed very well, holding up for 6 hours of drinking improving for the first two and then holding steady for the rest of dinner. A solid cork might mean a longer life for this bottle.
