K&L Notes

Made during the era when the notorious winemaker André Tchelistcheff was still at the helm. The 1969 vintage is the last before the winery was sold to the large Heublein drinks conglomerate. Food and Wine's Ray Isle wrote about a BV Georges de Latour retrospective, in which he praised the 1969 bottling for its impressive longevity: "That '69 was still resolutely alive after 40 years, with scents of tea leaf, dried currants and mocha; a tangy, orange-peel acidity; and a silky texture. It seemed unlikely to me that some of the later vintages we tasted would last as well, nor were they necessarily as inviting." (11/2010) BV Collector's Notes: "Mature, but still solid ruby-garnet color, less deep than 1968. Even more fragrant, perfumed and fresh than 1968, with less 'stewed' or cook fruit character. Ripe, clean and long flavors, with real finesse and weight as well."
