Notes on the vintage
Although the 1966 growing season in Bordeaux was a bit rocky, the weather before harvest was nearly ideal with hot, dry days extending into the end of September allowing the grapes to ripen and produce excellent wines. At 50+ years of age, the wines are still drinking well, due to high tannin structure and elevated acidity levels that are hallmarks of an old school, classic Bordeaux vintage.

Wines to be featured:
–       1966 Château Palmer, Margaux
–       1966 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou, St. Julien
–       1966 Château Brane-Cantanac, Margaux
