"1961 may have been the greatest vintage of the 1960s but 1964 is remarkable for its balance,’ said Angelo, noting that 1999 and 2004 were similarly notable for their unusual combination of both quality and quantity. This was quite stunning – what a treat for all 200 of us to enjoy a 45-year-old wine in such brilliant condition. So harmonious and velvety, yet still with great freshness. Sweet, mild – a great testament to a winemaking dynasty." 18.5/20, Jancis Robinson.com
