1969 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: 1969-port-wineA vintage Port from the 1969 vintage makes a perfect 50 year old wine gift for a special birthday or anniversary. Some excellent Colheita (Tawny) Ports were produced from the 1969 harvest and this are highly recommended by our wine buyer. The Feuerheerd 1969 Colheita Port is outstanding. The 1969 vintage was good enough to yield a few single Quinta vintage ports, notably Taylors Vargellas and some exceptional Colheita ports.
 
Italian: 1969 was a good 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 lighter wines such as Chianti and Valpolicella. The wines are now fully mature and still drinking well.
 
Bordeaux: The 1969 wine vintage was unkind to Bordeaux reds. 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. However, sweet wines from the regions of Sauternes and Barsac were very good in this year and will last for many more years.

Blandys Madeira, 1969

Bual Madeira

WA - The 1969 Bual (bottled November 2012) has a lucid amber/mahogany color with a green tinge on the rim. The nose is mellow at first, but rapidly gains momentum with scents of molasses, smoke, hazelnut and an antique bureau. It is well-defined, a little more oxidative than I expected, but that is no bad thing. The palate is lively and fresh on the entry with a killer line of acidity that lends this Bual more than enough tension and nervosite. Marmalade, quince, touches of tobacco and even a touch of chili oil inform this vivacious Bual, and it is only after three to four hours aeration that it begins to settle.

Nose retained some black fruit, healthy and concentrated. In the mouth it was exquisite, a fine mature Bordeaux with sweetness, lenght, concentration and good length. Thorougly enjoyable and not tired in the least!" Cellar tracker.com Deep mature colour. Amazingly good nose. Stables, leather, smoke, salt/mineral, cassis, tobacco and pencil/graphite. Stringent, lots of tannins, but still fruit that stand up to the tannins. On the palate this wine offers leather, coffee, tobacco, meat and blood. Quite light body, but very nice mouthfill and the finish is quite long - 25 to 30 sec. " cellartracker.

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1969

St Estephe, 2nd Growth Classification (very top shoulder )

Château Cos D'Estournel is regarded by many as the finest wine within the northern commune of Saint Estèphe and is certainly an aesthete's delight. Driving past the stately Château Lafite-Rothschild with its manicured gardens and willow-trees billowing in the wind, you enter a roller-coaster dip which ascends towards a building that appears to have been designed on LSD with its Chinese pagodas and menagerie of creatures: lions, elephants and unicorns sculpted in sandstone that radiates at sunset. Even the large main door is ornately carved with exotic flora and fauna. What is surprising is that this is not even a place of residence: but simply one of the most outrageously decadent chai in the world.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1969

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (Mid Shoulder)

The nose is an effusive clean intoxicating melange of tobacco, leather, tea leaves, iron, and a clinging streak of red raspberry. Aromas carry through as flavours kept in keen focus by ample acidity and bouyed by fully resolved creamy tannins.

Cotes du Rhone, 1969

Les Chais de Beaulieu

Côtes du Rhône is a huge appellation in the south of France encompassing 40,300 ha. Plenty of white and rosé wine is produced in Côtes du Rhône but there can be no doubt that red is king. Usually Grenache will dominate the blend (except in the north where Syrah is allowed to be top dog, but these wines are relatively few) and is normally partnered with Syrah and/or Mourvèdre but a further 18 varieties are also permitted! A cheerful example might be light, soft, fruity and easy-drinking, while the finest examples may be full-bodied, concentrated, intense, spicy and ageworthy. But what they all invariably have in common is a fabulous sense of place and lashings of personality and character.

Dom Perignon, 1969

Champagne

Dom Pérignon 1969 is a rare Champagne for those very special occasions.

The quality of Moët et Chandon’s Cuvée Dom Perignon is attributed to the fact that Moët only make it in truly exceptional vintages from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; which are picked from only the very best crus of the entire region.

Dom Pérignon is named after the famous 17th Century Benedictine Monk who actually did more for still wines in the region, contrary to the myth that he invented Champagne.
Just one bottle available.

Reviews..
“Quite simply the best champagne I have tasted. Poured from a magnum, it has a luscious amber/lemon hue with still a little mousse.

Francia, 1969

Nino Negri - Riserva

This red wine is deep crimson in colour, and has a rich bouquet of dried cherries, pencil shavings, tar and roses – the tell-tale sign of a wine made from Nebbiolo. As might be expected for a mountain-grown wine made from Nebbiolo, it is light-bodied and laced with grippy tannins. Although generally weightier and more concentrated than standard Rosso di Valtellina wines, they are almost always lighter in both body and power than the most famous of all Nebbiolo-based wines, Barolo and Barbaresco.
