Tasting notes 70 year old wine  for a 70th birthday gift idea Banyuls Pietri Geraud

The 1950 is very different from the 1952 and is one of the standout wines from Philippe Gayral. It is more mature in color, more volatile but complex, with notes of Bovril, cooked meat, hazelnut and sloes. It is quite precocious, most likely because it was blended with 15% of another vintage at some point. The palate is sweet and intense on the entry with candied orange peel, Moroccan spice, sloes and a touch of eau-de-vie. It is very harmonious and intense, but showing great harmony towards the finish. Gorgeous! Tasted December 2012.
