1970 Poujeaux, Moulis

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1970 Poujeaux was proffered by current proprietor Mathieu Cuvelier when I was over on the Right Bank. Old vintages of this Moulis can be a surprise. This 46-year-old wine was a little faded, but still yielded pleasure, the nose earthy, a little bony perhaps but still with vestiges of tart red cherries. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins, light in the mouth but balanced and fresh, leafy and herbaceous towards the finish. It held up for 30-40 minutes in the glass before taking its final breaths and oxidizing. Old school for sure, at the end o ...Read More »

1970 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (high shoulder fill)

Wine Spectator: "Medium garnet; cedar and tobacco nose; elegant and slightly austere, but friendly and evolved fruit flavors." (5/1993) K&L Notes: Master of Wine Clive Coastes has described the wines of Léoville-Poyferré "the quintessence of St-Julien in its balance and finesse."

1970 Pape Clement, Graves (high shoulder)

According to Robert Parker: "...this medium-bodied, very soft and supple wine has a classy, earthy, cedary, spicy bouquet, and good flavors..." (01/98) From Wine Spectator: "Medium garnet; cassis nose, almost flowery, with cedary notes; pronounced earthy flavor..." (05/93)

1970 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (1.5 L) (High shoulder)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1970 Cos d'Estournel's color remains an impressive dark garnet with ruby/purple tints. The wine is medium to full-bodied, tannic, rustic, and concentrated ... It will keep for another 25 years..." (6/1996)

1970 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

Michael Broadbent: "Fragrant and fruity in cask. Evolving pleasantly through the 1980s. Most recently, a good mature colour, distinctly sweet, sound, drinking well. Last noted at an office tasting at Christie's, June 1998. 3 stars." (Michael Broadbent's Vintage Wine, pg 80)

1970 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (High shoulder)

92 points Wine Spectator: "I drank a lot of this in Paris when I lived there in the mid-1980s. And I had a bottle this summer as well. Always outstanding. Shows intense aromas of prune and licorice. Full, velvety and long. This is a beautiful Bordeaux. At its peak. (2007) (Web only)" (1/2007) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is interesting that this was the next vintage tasted in the vertical tasting, and I am not surprised given the mediocre decade of performances by Lynch Bages. Only the 1975 stands out, and that wine seems only good when compared to modern day successes. The 1970 is an old style Lynch Bages w ...Read More »

1970 Pape Clément, Graves

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1970 Pape Clement was...shocking...in terms of its precocity. This bottle was acquired in Bordeaux and the level was as good as you could expect given that it was 46 years old. Quite deep in color, the bouquet is just wonderful with smudged black fruit, warm gravel, clove and bay leaf. It exudes Graves-like aromas and conveys superb vigor. The palate shot well above my expectations: very well balanced and laden with black fruit. There is real weight and presence here, touches of sandalwood, clove and a subtle pine needle note emerging with time. It s ...Read More »

1970 Gazin, Pomerol (1.5L)

Robert Parker writes: "Readers may have forgotten (or never knew) that a chunk of this vineyard was sold to Petrus in the early 1970s, but what remains is still a superb terroir and incredibly well-placed on the plateau of Pomerol, adjacent to Petrus and across the road from Lafleur."

86 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1970 Cos d'Estournel's color remains an impressive dark garnet with ruby/purple tints. The wine is medium to full-bodied, tannic, rustic, and concentrated, but coarse and charmless. It will keep for another 25 years, but I wonder if this wine will ever blossom? (RP)" (6/1996)

1970 Cantemerle, Haut-Medoc (High shoulder)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine continues to evolve beautifully and has turned out to be one of the sleepers of the vintage. The fragrant bouquet of plums, fruitcake, cedar, and spicy oak is followed by a medium-bodied, concentrated wine with gobs of fruit, excellent length, and overall balance. The wine appears to have just entered the plateau of maturity. This is undoubtedly the best Cantemerle made during the seventies." (1/1998) Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby-garnet; concentrated, aromatic cassis and tar nose; firm, fruity, quite young and fresh, with much vigor." (5/1993)

1970 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Cheval Blanc dinner at The Ledbury. This has always been a great 1970 Saint Emilion. It has a noticeable deep hue. The nose is unashamedly rustic with mulberry, crushed flowers, wild heather and a touch of chlorophyll. Great definition and vibrancy: a wine wallowing in its secondary aromas. The palate has fine definition and demonstrated much more backbone than the Cheval ’78 tasted alongside. Here, the Merlot is undaunted by the Cabernet Franc and lends it a beguiling fleshiness, especially towards the ferrous finish. This is wonderful, that i ...Read More »

1970 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (1.5L)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has been fully mature and delicious for many years, so I was not surprised by how stunning this bottle was. It has always been an outstanding wine for the vintage - complex, rich, savory, and the quintessentially elegant Bordeaux. This beauty continues to reveal the fragrance and finesse that one expects from Lafite-Rothschild but so rarely finds. A fragrant, complex bouquet of cedar, herbs, vanillin, fruitcake, and coffee is followed by a soft, gentle, graciously-constructed wine with sweet layers of fruit. I am not sure how much longer the 19 ...Read More »

1970 Haut Bailly, Pessac-Leognan

According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In a 1970 claret tasting held several years ago, Haut-Bailly performed well, indicating that this is probably the best vintage for the chateau between 1964 and 1979. It still has that in-your-face, up-front, smoky, sweet, herbaceous fruit, medium body, soft, velvety tannins, and a long, smooth, alcoholic finish. Anticipated maturity: Now." (Bordeaux book, 1998)

1970 Troplong Mondot, St. Emilion (High shoulder) Back In Stock!
1970 Troplong Mondot, St. Emilion (High shoulder)

Clive Coates: "Good Colour. Mature but no undue age. Round, spicy, ample, reasonably full. Not too rustic. Medium full, ripe and even rich. It is a little artisinal. It lacks the supple, harmonious, velvet and cedar of a more classy example. Not without depth or interest." (Grands Vins: The Finest Châteaux of Bordeaux and Their Wines, pg 445)

1970 Kirwan, Margaux (High shoulder)

Jancis Robinson: "Lovely mellow, glowing colour. Much drier and tighter than the 1975. Intense, dry and sturdy -- less obviously Margaux than the 1975. Much more marked by 1970's firm, not to say rather uncompromising backbone than the mellower 1975. 17.5/20 points (JR)" (2/2009) Wine Spectator: "Medium garnet; ripe black truffle nose, with a tarry note; round, ripe and slightly lean, but elegant; a bit dry."

1970 Trotanoy, Pomerol (1.5L) (4cm fill, soiled & torn label)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1970 Trotanoy can be prone to TCA issues, and I suffered a run of tainted bottles until this pristine example served in Bordeaux. One immediately discerns a deep garnet core, while the first sniff is like hearing the thundering of horses in the distance, presaging a spellbinding bouquet of iodine, macerated dark cherries, a hint of eucalyptus and with time, Japanese green tea (the traditional, “stand your spoon it type”). The palate is full-bodied with a velvety smooth texture, powerful and, I think, with more substance than the impressive 1971. The ...Read More »
