1969 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: No declaration of vintage but the 1969 port-wines produced were of good quality and have stood the test of time.
 
Italian: 1969 was a reasonable vintage for Italian wines. The weather was good throughout the year enabling the grapes to reach a high degree of ripeness. Of particular note are the heavyweight, long-lived wines such as Barolo, Brunello and Tauresi and lighter wines such as Chianti and Valpolicella. The wines are now fully mature and are still drinking well today.
 
Bordeaux: 1969 Wine Vintage is one to avoid! Rain during the September harvest contributed to what was a small crop of light-weight wines that lacked longevity. Only first growth wines will be drinkable.

Sauternes and Barsac: Sweet wines from these regions were very good in this year and will last for many more years.

 
Champagne: 1969 Champagne is one of the outstanding vintages of the 20th Century.

Barbera del Monferrato, 1969

Tenuta Montestregone

This 1969 Barbera del Monferrato has a deep ruby hue and a bouquet of ripe plum and cherries, often piqued by a hint of black pepper. Barbera-based wines are known for retaining a balanced acidity even in warmer vintages, making them an ideal partner to tomato-based dishes. These wines are lower in tannin, making them more approachable in their early years. Barbera from Monferrato differs from that made in Asti or Alba in both its provenance and style. Where Alba and Asti produce strongly structured wines, their Monferrato equivalents are more aromatic and often a little less robust.
