Quantity and quality can define the 1970 vintage which was the greatest vintage of Bordeaux wines since 1961, benefiting from good weather conditions. With a homogeneous success, all Bordeaux designations have their share of successes with special mention for 1970 red Bordeaux from the Pomerol, Saint Emilion and Graves sectors (classified growths). The Sauternes is less accomplished because of the lack of humidity to develop its botrytis. Significant overproduction in 1970 red and white Burgundy wines, which led above all to light, less deep wines with lower aging potential. Good wines in the Rhone Valley, especially in the South sector (1970 Chateauneuf du Pape). Plethoric vintage for Champagne wines with the record of the 20th century in yield (13.800 kg/Ha). The Loire Valley gave beautiful 1970 Saumur Champigny, 1970 Chinon and 1970 Bourgueil . Notable success for the Alsace vineyard as well in this 1970 vintage.
To buy a wine from the 1970 vintage, the wine connoisseurs will have a choice because the quality is recognized and the quantities have made it possible to keep many bottles. In red Bordeaux, priority is given to 1970 Graves, 1970 Pomerol and 1970 Saint Emilion and the Grands Crus Classes from 1970 Haut Medoc . The red wines of the Rhone valley (1970 Chateauneuf du Pape) and the Loire Valley (1970 Bourgueil, 1970 Chinon, 1970 Saumur Champigny) are to be preferred.
