1970 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac:
The 1970 Mouton Rothschild had opened magnificently to reveal a classic bouquet of sweet cassis, tobacco, minerals, and exotic spice aromas. Opulent, full-bodied, thick, and juicy, the extraordinary evolution of this particular bottle would make a persuasive argument for long-term decanting. After being perplexed throughout much of this wine's evolution, I was reassured by this bottle.

1970 Chateau d'Yquem, Sauternes :
The 1970 Chateau Yquem is a monumental wine that has been perfectly cellared for nearly 50 years before being acquired by VWP. Perfect colour and exceptional condition.
"The 1970 Yquem is a large-scaled, rich, full-bodied, fairly alcoholic Yquem with significant flavor interest as well as crisp acidity. Unlike the 1971, which is close to peak maturity, this wine has a long way to go and is impressive, but not yet revealing all of its potential." Robert Parker, Bordeaux 3rd Edition. Parker rating 90/100 (outstanding)
Mouton: High Shoulder & good label/ Yquem: good level and label
