Chateau Haut Brion, 1970

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe
Damaged labels

*** 90-92 points - Wine Journal ***

Reviews: "Brown rim. Brown sugar, olives and leather nose. Quite rich for 1970. Balanced and very smooth palate. Coffee & sweet red fruits. Fully mature, a highly enjoyable wine (and far cheaper than Latour.) Somewhat under-rated by others. Then again chez Alex Hunt in November 2005. Although a little musty at first, this wine grows and grows on you. A cool, blackberry leaf, cranberry nose with lots of cedar and pine is followed by a tannic, almost rustic, broad-shouldered palate with cedary, tobacco-infused fruit. Very classic in style but suited the venison perfectly.

Chateau La Lagune, 1970

Medoc Grand Cru Classe

THE 1970 La Lagune is from exceptional provenance having been professionally stored since original purchase.
Quite a deep garnet core. A surprisingly sweet, fragrant almost floral nose with notes of backed cherries and tar. The palate has sharp acidity, very fresh, well-knit with simple black fruits. Not a complex wine, but a testament to how well balanced, rather than powerful wines can age. Raisins on the finish. Impressive for a 1970. Neil Martin, Wine Journal

Château La Lagune is a distinguished wine estate situated in the Haut-Médoc appellation of Bordeaux, France. With a history dating back to the 16th century, the estate has garnered acclaim for its production of high-quality red wines.

Chateau Langoa Barton, 1970

St Julien 3rd Growth Classification - BBR labels

"A wonderfully successful wine, the 1970 Langoa smells and tastes comparable to a top Pauillac. A big, yet restrained bouquet of cedar and black currants is first rate. On the palate, the wine is ripe, weighty, rich, tannic, full bodied, and several years away from its zenith. This is Langoa at its best." Parker Bordeaux 3rd Ed.

Chateau Lynch-Bages, 1970

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification
92 Points Wine Spectator
Top shoulder / Bin soiled labels

*** 92 Points Wine Spectator ***
I drank a lot of this in Paris when I lived there in the mid-1980s. And I had a bottle this summer as well. Always outstanding. Shows intense aromas of prune and licorice. Full, velvety and long. This is a beautiful Bordeaux. (JS, Web Only-2007)

**** 91 Points Robert Parker ****
The 1970 is an old style Lynch Bages with plenty of dry tannin in the finish. Compellingly aromatic, it offers aromas of cedar wood, spice box, tobacco, earth, black currants, and new saddle leather. Spicy, concentrated, and burly, with mouth-searing tannin, this big, thick wine is a terrific example of Lynch Bages made in an older style.

Chateau Montrose, 1970

St Estephe 2eme Cru Classe

*** 92 Points Robert Parker ***

Reviews: "This is one 1970 that appears to possess the necessary components to develop into something special. It remains youthfully hard and astringent, but there is no doubting the high levels of concentration and intensity. Moreover, the wine exhibits a classy, complex bouquet, offering up scents of cedar, black fruits, minerals, and leather. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with outstanding concentration, this wine requires another 7-10 years of cellaring - can you believe that? It is unquestionably a 40-50-year wine" PArker Wine Advocate 1996

"A knockout bottle when first tasted in March 2001, when it had a complex, black dusty nose and an ultra-dense, backward, masculine palate.

Chateau Croizet Bages, 1969

The 1969 Chateau Croizet Bages is a classic Bordeaux from a weak vintage. These bottles are from a good cellar, where they have been well-stored since original purchase.

Tasting notes: The wine is primarily made from Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller proportions of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Expect to find notes of soy, dense, dark and brooding ashy notes and umami. Cedar and ash, wood smoke and undergrowth. It will still show remnants of its blackcurrant and bramble nature. This wine is slumbering but alive.

Food Pairing This wine would pair beautifully with rich, hearty dishes such as roasted lamb, beef stew, or aged cheeses.
