Chateau Margaux, 1966

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe (Top shoulder, good label)

*** 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: £575.00 (2 in Stock)

Chateau Musar , 1966

Bekaar Valley, Gaston Hochar
Blanc,
Mid-low Shoulder - bin soiled label - sold without guarantee

A rare bottle of 1966 Blanc Musar. One for the Musar collectors!

Chateau Musar is often referred to as the Lafite of the Lebanon. Wine maker Gaston Hochar defied the odds producing a string of great wines during the Lebanon War. Musar has assumed legendary status. Complex, long-lived and endlessly varied, in some vintages it seems more like a Burgundy, in others a Bordeaux, in still others a Hermitage. But it is always brilliantly, uniquely, Lebanese. Ages magnificently but good vintages are usually best at 10-20 years old.

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

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.

The 1966 Delaforce vintage port is... "Absolutely charming, vibrant cherry fruit and cedar, flowery cognac high notes, spicy, woody depth; lightly sweet, not very complex but remarkably fresh, deliciously fragrant, slender 1966-style, firm but not edgy acidity, lovely resolved tannin, good length. A very good 1966." Celler Tracker, review - posted 2011

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 - Peatling and Cawdron Label

"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.
