1970 Ramos Pinto, 1970

Vintage Port

From the outstanding 1970 vintage, the Ramos Pinto is a beautiful port. Excellent colour with a little red. On the nose jammy strawberries, spice, a hint of pepper and liquorice. On the palate, so beautifully smooth and in great balance, red fruit some violets. A long long finish. This is a beautiful wine.

Reviews
"Mature in appearance with a wide rose rim; 60% opaque but full of fine sediment. Delicious redcurrants on the nose, mature and sweet. Rounded and sweet on the palate with lots of sweet fruit but lacking a little acidity so feeling a touch flabby. Very sweet on the late palate, with lots of parma violets which appear on and dominate the aftertaste.

Barolo, 1970

Coppo Luigi - Riserva

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

Chateau Bellefont Belcier, 1970

Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe

A delicate bouquet with red fruits, licorice, butter and oak. This is still very much alive, with berry fruits and a musty, cigar box that follows the wine throughout. It is full bodied with a nice long finish.


Chateau Bellefont Belcier dates back to the seventeenth century as an estate. The vineyard was officially founded in the middle of the eighteenth century by Count Louis Francois de Belcier, which as you can guess, is where the estate took the first part of its name from. In 1803, the Count constructed the chateau that remains in use today.

Chateau La Tour de Grenet, 1970

Lussac St Emilion

This is a wine made to be enjoyed. The substance is ripe but not too jam-like, the structure has a delicate character, while the wine is imposing overall. It is velvety smooth, with good colour, with fruity and floral aromas. The tower, built in the 19th century, gave its name to the vineyard. The property belonged to the Abbaye de Faize in the 16th century. In 1970, it became the property of the BRUNOT family. As a result of its remarkably sunny position on one of the highest slopes of the region and of its clay-limestone soil, the vines produce grapes which give a full bodied wine , full of vigour that keep extremely well.

Chateau Lanessan, 1970

Medoc

Amazingly deep, dense colour. Immensely rich opulent spicy bouquet. Stupendous. Deep, rich plums. A real rich taste of Medoc terroir. Infused with haunting Havana flavours. Sweet cherries and sandalwood taste. Just so taste. Just so unbelievably full of glycerol, still. Unbelievable, if you had not experienced it”. The wines of Chateau Lanessan are famous for their longevity. The reputation of the chateau has long been known in Bordeaux and all those who have been lucky enough to taste back through the decades have been greatly impressed by the quality and youth of these wines.

Chateau Laroze, 1970

Saint Emilion Grand Cru (Berry Bros Label)

Lush black cherry fruit. As this wine sits in the glass, notes of earth, dried Provencal herbs, and kirsch emerge, as if the wine was a hybrid between a southern Cotes du Rhone and a classic Bordeaux. There is some tannin in the finish.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1970

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
Bin Soiled Labels - levels highShoulder

**93 Points - Robert Parker**

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.

Chateau Phelan Segur, 1970

St Estephe, Cru Grand Bourgeois Exceptional

Colour is darker than expected with very little bricking. Nose shows clear signs of age and let's you know it is no longer at peak but after a few minutes of air exposure, it comes together nicely. Classic wet tobacco and ash notes on the nose. Medium body but full attack with bright acidity and even though both fruit and tannins have receded, there's still some sweetness. It really penetrates your tastebuds. More tertiary notes of forest floor, game, wet leather, tobacco and cigar box. Finish is pleasant.

This 1970 wine from Pichon Longuville Baron still has a deep red colour with a tawny edge. The tannins are still very present but in a pleasant way. The wine still had a core of red fruit and blackberry. Some brett and earthy, forest floor notes. A very fun wine. Cellar Tracker Notes.
