Stars?  The Rayas was generally thought to be the loveliest on the night, then for me, the 1949 Clos des Lambrays and Clos St Denis 1985.  Interesting that then two Bordeaux wines that are such stars, still tasted so young and faded into the background alongside the Burgundy wines, which shone superbly.

A very memorable night.
