Besides 59, 61, 82, 85, 90, 05 vintages, wines produced in the 70s era have very delightful fine style. If you are a true blue Bordeaux lover, you must (at least!) try a few bottles from 70s vintage. I have drank quite a lot from the 70, 75, 78 vintages and some are worth mentioning!
I select a few TOP Rated wines in today special as Fantastic 3!
Though critics might not go crazy over the 70s vintage, I can help you unearth big gems in any vintage! That’s where my expertise comes in! For example in 75s, this vintage produced some fleshy, sensuous Pomerol wines which it is famous for. I realize many people didn’t know that this is a right bank superb Pomerol vintage, but overall both banks are good!

Barolo · Italy
Grapes – Nebbiolo, Sangiovese
I remember when I first tasted this wine probably 5 years ago, after a glass of it, I had paper cut on my tongue! The tannins in the wine was so harsh that I thought it’s going to take at least 2-3 decades to be approachable, particularly since it’s a Barolo.
Retesting it today, the tannins have mellowed down a lot more., while still dry, at least I’m able to drink more than a glass.
Nostrils: very rich and delicious with supple red fruits, some ripe plum and floral undertones
Tongue: extremely lush on the palate; delicious red fruit; black tea; sassafras root”
Pessac-Leognan · France
Grapes – Shiraz/Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Was tasting some samples today, hopefully this second wine of Carbonnieux is in good shape.
Nose is decent, quite fruity, cooked stewed fruits, and slightly floral fragrance. A sip and I shook my head; dry, light and diluted despite the fact that it was easy drinking and smooth. Also quite woody and turned cough syrup about an hour later.
When I learned about the price of €22 after the tasting, I almost choked on my own saliva! Not worth even €7 to me. Sigh. “
Saint-Émilion · France
Was tasting some samples sent by vendor, and was utterly disappointed with the content. Very earthy on the nose, like wet soil, and s tinge of barnyard.
Palate was rather disappointing too; very sour, lacked flavor, woody, bond dry, spicy, absolutely no charm. “
Hermitage · France
Grapes – Shiraz/Syrah, Marsanne
“ANOTHER HERMITAGE 85
As per my previous post, I didn’t believe that La Chapelle 85 was that great, unlike many wise man’s claim. Perhaps this JL Chave Hermitage 85 just proved my point.
Big bouquet, very funky, beefy, masculine and punchy. Loads of sour cherries on the palate, along with extremely rich fruits. An exceptionally structured wine that makes me ponder how long it can age for. Slightly woody and very dry. The dryness was a sign of weakness to me. “
Toscana · Italy
Grapes – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot
“This sub-label from Tua Rita is actually very decent daily drinking wine to me. Nose of burned wood, raw green vegetables. Palate was big, very fruit driven, although very easy but still very tannic, best to let it age for another 5 more years before drinking it. “
