94 points John Gilman: "I drank quite a bit of the 1970 Graham’s over the course of the 1990s, but had not crossed paths with a bottle in several years until this most recent example. The wine is superb in 1970, as it displays a bouquet of voluptuous complexity, offering up scents of black cherry, plum, cedar, fresh mint, chocolate, a bit of tobacco leaf, and lovely, estery floral topnotes. On the palate the wine is focused and opulent, with fine framing acidity adding a note of precision to the attack, and with excellent freshness and balance on the sof...

96 points Wine Spectator: "Some people may enjoy this wine's rather fat, rich and powerful fruit now, but I still find it too young for drinking. Deeply colored, with smoky mint, tar and fruit aromas, full-bodied, with concentrated fruit flavors and plenty of tannins. (JS, Web Only-1989)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Vintners Company’s 650th anniversary celebration at Vintners Hall, the Fonseca 1970 was the finest bottle I have encountered. The bouquet opens beautifully with heady scents of clove, ginger, small red cherries, b...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1970 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan (94JG, 92RP, 90WS). John Gilman: "This bottle of 1970 Haut Brion was flat out magnificent, with a depth and intensity that only comes from pristinely stored examples. The magnificent bouquet soars from the glass in a mélange of red berries, tobacco, coffee, St. Emilion-like menthol tones, cocoa powder, orange zest, hot bricks and a pungent, mature Graves note of candle wax. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and intensely-flavored, with fabulous focus and depth, and a very, very long, seamless and complex finish. There are beautiful framing acids here which give the wine lift and brightness. A beautiful example of the 1970 vintage. (Drink between 2006-2025) " (05/2007)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It has been quite a few years since I tasted this Cos d’Estournel. This bottle had a much more herbaceous bouquet compared to eight years ago: undergrowth, tree bark, dusty mahogany bureau with vestiges of sweet red fruits eventually rising to the surface. The palate is foursquare and conservative with dusty black fruits and a dry, aloof finish that has its own “classic” charm. (NM)" (03/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1970 Graham's Vintage Port (94JG, 94WS, 93RP). Wine Spectator: "This is an extremely full-bodied, powerful wine, but it still retains a classy balance. Deep ruby, with chocolate and berry aromas, full-bodied, with anise and dried cherry flavors, full, hard tannins and a long finish. Good now but a few more years of bottle age would improve it. (JS, Web Only-1989)"

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Latour, Pauillac (96JG, 96RP, 94JS, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at dinner at Domaine de Chevalier. The Latour ’70 can be such a variable beast. This is certainly one of the better, more representative bottles. Deep garnet in colour, nice limpidity in the glass. It has a beautiful nose that to be honest, sweeps aside the respectable Domaine de Chevalier ’70 poured alongside, like a lord dismissing his servant with a swish of his hand. Graphite, wild black fruit, freshly rolled tobacco and a faint hint of truffle. The palate is medium-bodied and after forty years, still quite austere but the balance is nailed. Masculine and foursquare, a Latour with a lot of horsepower…but not necessarily revving in top gear…at least not after four decades. Lovely cedar and mint on the long, long finish. Wonderful. I do not think this wine will get any better, but a divine vinous experience now. (NM-Wine Journal)" (11/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Les Forts De Latour, Pauillac (94JG, 90RP). John Gilman: "This is a superb wine that has been fully mature for a couple of decades, but possesses more than a passing resemblance to the grand vin in this year in terms of proper structure and will continue to drink well for many years to come. The nose wafts from the glass in a sweet and fully resolved blend of cassis, black cherries, cigar smoke, a hint of mint, singed tobacco leaf, gravelly soil tones, a nice touch of leather and a smoky upper register. On the palate the wine is full, pure and velvety on the attack, with a fine core of fruit, fine focus and balance, bright acids, impressive complexity and still plenty of grip on the long, elegant and meltingly tannic finish. Lovely juice and probably the greatest mature vintage Forts de Latour I have tasted. Drink between 2011-2030." (10/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1970 Suduiraut, Sauternes (93JG, 90VN). John Gilman: "The 1970 Château Suduiraut is another lovely example of this fine Sauternes vintage, offering up a deep and fully mature bouquet of apricot, tangerine, leather, crème brulée, a fine base of chalky soil and a topnote of honey. On the palate the wine is deep, full and focused, with a lovely core, fine balance and grip and a long, vibrant and bouncy finish. This is really a lovely vintage of Suduiraut that is presently at its apogee of peak maturity. " (01/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva (97VN). Vinous: "The 1970 Barolo Riserva Monfortino can be a life-changing wine. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of moments like those. Deep and exquisitely layered, the 1970 is gorgeous tonight, if not as profoundly moving as it can be. Sage, menthol, licorice, coffee and leather infuse the 1970 with striking layers of nuance. All of the richness and explosiveness of Monfortino is there, even in a slightly less than perfect bottle.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (94JG, 92RP). John Gilman: "I have been a big fan of the 1970 Ducru-Beaucaillou, but in the past I have always found it just a half step behind the superb 1966. However, the most recent tasting seemed to indicate that the wine is showing more structural integrity and greater depth than it did for the last decade and a half, and it may well be that the wine has simply remained a bit young and I have been underestimating it in the past. This most recent bottle offers up a stunning and still youthful nose of cassis, black cherries, a touch of red currant, cigar smoke, nutskins, hints of blood orange, gravel, fresh herbs and a touch of tobacco ash. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very suave on the attack, with excellent mid-palate depth, moderate tannins, very good acidity and outstanding length and grip on the perfectly balanced and complex finish. Just a beautiful vintage for Ducru. (Drink between 2012-20

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 CVNE "Viña Real" Gran Reserva Rioja (94JG, 94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1970s saw major changes in Rioja: the first "modern" wines were produced by Marqués de Cáceres, Remelluri and Contino, and the aging time in wood for wines was shortened in general. Until then, six years in barrique was the norm (almost the minimum) for reds, and this time was shortened during the 1970s and 1980s until the approximate two years of today. The breakdown by variety was about 40% Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha and 20% of the rest, mainly Mazuelo and Graciano. 1970 was a very famous vintage in Rioja, the one that provoked the extension of the vineyards...his was a very ripe vintage, and the wine seems to be aging faster than other vintages, with a little sweet fruit, ripe and fully resolved. The 1970 Viña Real Gran Reserva was bottled in February 1975. There was a bit of discussion about this wine, as it was one of the most anticipated vintages. At this age, of

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1970 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Poured just prior to the Wine Advocate's Las-Cases dinner by a generous subscriber, while I was seated next to export manager Pierre Grafeuille, we were both smitten. It had a comely bouquet with degraded red berries, a touch of undergrowth and black stewed tea, delivering impressive delineation, if not power. The palate is medium-bodied, surprisingly elegant and without question the most vigorous example of the 1970 that I have encountered over the years. While not profoundly complex or rivaling the finest examples of this Saint Julien, it is the kind of mature Claret that puts a smile on your face, seeming to be so effortless and refined. Will future bottles be as good as this? Was it a one-off? Who knows, but certainly here we had a Bordeaux that delivers drinking pleasure after 46 years without too much effort. (NM)" (07/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Fonseca Vintage Port (96WS, 95RP). Wine Spectator: "Some people may enjoy this wine's rather fat, rich and powerful fruit now, but I still find it too young for drinking. Deeply colored, with smoky mint, tar and fruit aromas, full-bodied, with concentrated fruit flavors and plenty of tannins. (JS, Web Only-1989)"

Bid on this bottle of 1970 d'Yquem, Sauternes (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Somewhat less evolved than the 1971, and for me always a shade less interesting and complex, the 1970 Yquem is a large-scaled, rich, full-bodied, fairly alcoholic Yquem with significant flavor interest as well as crisp acidity. Unlike the 1971, which is close to peak maturity, this wine has a long way to go and is impressive, but not yet revealing all of its potential. (RP)" (01/1998)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Warre's Tercentenary Vintage Port. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good tawny called Nimrod. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop, and while they never quite have the voluptuous richness of a Dow, Graham, or Fonseca, they have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style. The 1970 remains rather unyielding but still impressive. (RP)" (12/1988)
