Chateau Margaux, 1966

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe (High shoulder, label stained, vintage legible)

*** 91 points - Wine Journal ***

Review:
"this is a classic mature Claret that is delectable to drink now…and not too much later. There is a palpable coolness, almost aloofness on the nose that one often finds on this vintage, the overriding sense that this was a good vintage but not a hot one. It offers graphite, sous-bois and tobacco, the fruit having long ebbed away, yet it is still fresh and beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied and a little austere. Yet there is a sense of natural balance with fresh acidity and beguiling tertiary and cedar notes towards the finish. Wonderful.

Price: £295.00 (1 in Stock)

Chateau Pontet Canet, 1966

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification

The Pontet Canet has a good, dark ruby colour. The bouquet of wood and ripe plums is enjoyable, and not complex. In the mouth, the wine has plump, chunky, fruity flavors of good intensity

Price: £99.00 (13 in Stock)

Chateau Saint Pierre, 1966

Saint Julien (MAGNUM)

Surprisingly good, and filled with truffles, spice, cigar box, earth, black currants and cherry, the wine offers the silky, patina of age along with the earthy, spicy, tobacco laden flavors that can only come with serious bottle age. This is not going to improve, but it's great today.

Chateau Yquem, 1966

Sauternes 1er Grand cru Classe

A good wine. On the nose, there is some orange marmalade, honey and spice character in this wine. Turns quite woody, with lots of caramel.

YQUEM HARVEST NOTES: Weather was mediocre in summer, but improved in autumn. The harvest was very long: 48 days' work out of 55 to bring in a very worthwhile and slightly above average crop in terms of volume. A very rich vintage.

Dom Perignon, 1966

Champagne - Brut

"Definitely fully mature champagne. Amber colour with a rather low key nose initially which opened out to something attractive and lightly sherrified nose that really speaks to the jamon iberico we're served at this dinner at Taillevent organised by François Audouze, his 170th wine dinner. Very deep and rich yet dry. Real lift to this wine but it also has a deep, throat- warming finish. There's a note of cheddar on the nose. Very clean and revitalising. Rich and dense." Jancis Robinson

Dow's Port, 1966

Vintage Port

"This is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977. The 1966 is a top success for that vintage; in fact, it would be hard to find a better port from that year." Robert Parker, Wine Buyer Guide.
