Estate Notes

The 1969 Burgundy vintage is one of the truly great years for red Burgundy, producing fine wines with good fruit intensity and ageing potential. The crop was relatively small in size, but absolutely superb.

Most 1969 Pinot Noirs, like Comte Georges de Vogue's Bonnes-Mares, have verve and breeding, with excellent fruit balanced by good acidity and good backbone.

Reviews

“a wonderful wine…lovely colour: the real thing - a beautiful ripe elegant “beetroot” Pinot, excellent flavour, great length." Michael Broadbent MW

"A fully mature and seriously pretty nose of spice, earth, underbrush and an interesting hint of the sauvage combines with delicious, round and rich flavors that offer excellent depth and almost none of characteristic acidity that punctuates the finish on many '69s today plus, here there is vibrancy and punch rather than fatigue. This is a lovely wine that is arguably holding up better than its Musigny counterpart these days, especially over the last 5 years or so. In short, great stuff and while there is no reason to wait, neither is there any reason to hurry to drink up." Burghound
