wines for anniversary vintages
Best wines from the vintage 1960:
Very good wines: Penfolds grange 1960
Good wines: Vega Sicilia Unico 1960
An abundant and top-quality vintage in Bordeaux.
Red wines are plump and supple long-lived wines, comparable to the best vintages. Most of them can still withstand a closely monitored cellaring.
Whites wines are finesse-styled, racy and fruity; the sweet wines are fat, smooth and sappy.
Best wines from the vintage 1970:
Extraordinary wines:Château Petrus 1970
Outstanding wines: Chateauneuf du Pape Henri Bonneau Reserve des Celestins 1970, Guiseppe Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 1970, Vega Sicilia Unico 1970, Trotanoy 1970, Quinta do Nacional 1970.
Great wines: Château Palmer 1970, Quinta do Noval Nacional 1970, La Conseillante 1970
A quite high-quality but unjustly undervalued vintage, probably it was preceded by two promosing years. The reds should be consumed but some of them are still balanced, supple and pleaseant.
Best wines from the vintage 1980:
Outstanding wines: Dom Pérignon rose 1980.
Great wines: Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes 1980, Krug Clos du Mesnil 1980, Penfols grange 1980, La Tache 1980 domaine de la Romanée Conti, Château d’Yquem 1980.
In bordeaux the reds wines have a very good tannic structure, lovely sugar/acid balance and high natural degrees. The dry whites are armomatic, fat and persistent. The Sweet wines are made from extraordinarily rich musts, they reveal complex aromas of citrus fruit as well as the roasted character that distinguishes those vintages worthy of the Gods.
In Burgundy, homogeneous high

In Bordeaux, the red wines present immense potential and should be included in the list of greatest Bordeaux vintages. They are all at one dark-coloured, powerful, generous, robust and remarkably balanced.
