96/100 Cellartracker: "El vino ha quedado suspendido en el tiempo gracias a su acidez y a unos taninos esculpidos en seda. El conjunto es fresco y fluido, especiado, lleno de algo parecido a fruta reducida que llena la boca. A cada sorbo un poco más de elegancia, de admiración. Un viejo gran reserva con cuerda para rato".
94/100 Cellartracker: "Nose of sweet beet, cherry, raspberry, earth, mushroom, red flowers, minerals and nutmeg....blind, I would guess this as a red burgundy... fruit is really lively. The palate shows pure sweet red fruit....beet, cherry, strawberry, cherry, spice, earth, violets, sandalwood, soy and minerals....very pretty. The finish is long and complex....just a notch behind the 1954 CVNE Gran Reserva served alongside".
92/100 Cellartracker: "Powerful black fruit aromas, a little stinky at times; maybe a bit of VA. Quite poised and belies its years with really great grippy tannins. Full of bright black fruits, it has a nice sweet and sour character, the texture is lovely and there is a lingering creamy tobacco character on the finish. It's a great bottle but just suffered in comparison to the amazing 64 alongside it".
