Pretty pale ruby. The first wine to smell perhaps a little too old. Not as fresh as some though it delivers lots of naughty pleasure. Dustiness slightly trumps the fruit. It’s a tad dried out on the end though the flavours are a delight. Clean finish. A bit like a mix of mature vintage port, lemon juice and water. I’d like just slightly more fruit concentration in the middle. Drink 1990-2020. 17.5 points Jancis Robinson MW
The 1975, 1969 and 1967 styles are similar and appear to be more Cinsault dominated, the 1977, 1970 and 1966 vintages however seem to be from a different group, due to a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. These three vintages have a deeper, more mulberry cabernet colour with more backbone and ageing potential.
The 1975, 1969 and 1967 are more orangey brown in colour, more forward with an extraordinary bouquet and taste which is something on its own. - Ch. Musar
