Question about extremely old wine

This came to mind when I watched Somm: Into the Bottle, the scene where they drank the 1870 Lafite. Would a 140+ year old bottle (of Bordeaux or other standard wines) even be recognizable? Would it still be good? I have to imagine the flavors would be so vastly different that it might not even taste like a Bordeaux anymore
