It is interesting that this was the next vintage tasted in the vertical tasting and I am not surprised given the mediocre decade of performances by Lynch Bages. Only the 1975 stands out and that wine seems only good when compared to modern day successes. The 1970 is an old style Lynch Bages with plenty of dry tannin in the finish.

I drank a lot of this in Paris when I lived there in the mid-1980s. And I had a bottle this summer as well. Always outstanding. Shows intense aromas of prune and licorice. Full velvety and long. This is a beautiful Bordeaux. At its peak.--Lynch-Bages non-blind vertical. Drink now. -JS Wine Spectator.
