Chateau Cheval Blanc, 1966

St Emilion Premiere Grand Cru Classe (low shoulder - excluded from guarantee)

*** Oustanding! - Reviews Cellar Tracker. ***

*** 94 Points Neil Martin - Wine Journal ***

Reviews:
"Still garnet in the glass, edges lightening up only somewhat. Medium intense nose of damp soil, ferns, some damp tobacco. Tertiary and vegetal, although not in an entirely dissatisfying way. Livens up with a bit of coaxing: tea leaves, peppermint, menthol, echinacea. Ethereal but with power in the background. Big berry fruit on the palate, fully mature with tannins almost all resolved. Damp leathers. Sweet red cherry fruit surpasses currant and rhubarb. Tingling mouthfeel. A beautiful and special glass.

Chateau Gruaud Larose , 1966

St Julien 2nd Growth Classification

"A classic vintage for Gruaud-Larose, the 1966 remains surprisingly young, relatively unevolved, but austere, with a black currant, cedary, earthy fruitiness, and firm tannins. The finish is dry, but long and still youthful. In style and texture, the 1966 Gruaud-Larose resembles a big Pauillac. Will the 1966 Gruaud-Larose ever shed its tannic toughness?" Last tasted, 1/89. Bordeaux 3rd Ed.

Rating 88/100 (RP)

Chateau Latour , 1966

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (Mid Shoulder- label damp affected)

*** 96 Points Robert Parker ***
*** 95 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews
"The wine of the vintage, the 1966 Latour is a classic, old style Bordeaux that has required decades to become drinkable. A dark, opaque garnet color is followed by a fabulous nose of cedar, sweet leather, black fruits, prunes, and roasted walnuts, refreshing underlying acidity, sweet but noticeable tannin, and a spicy finish. This powerful, vigorous, immensely impressive, concentrated Latour has reached its plateau of maturity, where it will remain for another 10-20 years.

"The Latour ’66 remains one of the great wines of the vintage.
