Oenothèque

1969

ON THE PALATE

The effect on the palate is powerful and frank, against a profound and austere background. The wine remains somewhat closed, before finally revealing its impeccable structure. The finish is astonishingly fruity (blueberry).

ON THE NOSE

The bouquet is complex, concentrated and dark, with hints of candied citrus fruits, bitter chocolate, leather and dried flowers.

The 1969 Harvest

Weather conditions were unstable and difficult throughout the year. Flowering was late and came at a time of frequent, severe storms. The dry, sunny spell in September meant that the grape harvest could finally begin on 1 October.
