1969 capped the end of a trio of excellent vintages across the Rhône could even argue all of France. 1966 & 1964 complete the hattrick.

This bottle was quite an upside surprise and certainly the most youthful of the 1969’s sampled this month. Sweet berry fruit mixed nicely with leather and earth accents. Mature for sure but holding its color and fruit remarkably well. (93) 1/2/2020

I was pleasantly surprised how good this was for a 40-year old wine. This was a half-bottle, with good fill, and the cork came out clean. At first, there was only a musty smell and acid, but it plumped up nicely after a half-hour or so and it kept getting better for a while. The mustiness blew off and there was brilliant red fruit with a lot of structure remaining. Incredible! 10/10/2009
