A generous 40 hl/hectare was made. The vintage took place from 24 September to 6 October. 12% alcohol. I was amazed at how fresh this still was on the nose at 37 years old. It remains a fine 1970, although there is considerable bottle variation due to bottling practices at the time. It is pretty solid, with that Cheval sweet finish. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
