Our comment on
Probably the most underrated of all Bordeaux vintages. The weather conditions were ideal throughout spring and summer. However from October 8th on it rained continously and any château owner who had waited for that extra bit of ripeness saw its grapes swell and get diluted. Lafite and Mouton are the most famous examples. In Pomerol, St. Emilion the wines were very good and in many cases even better than the ‘61s. Graves also produced good and stylish wines as did St. Julien. It was in Margaux, Pauillac and St. Estéphe that the rain caused most havoc. The greatest wine of all Médocs and one of the three best of all 1964s is Latour which is drinking beautifully at the moment. Also very good are Léoville Las Cases and Montrose. Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion made truly lovely wines in Graves as did Pape Clement. The most consistently good wines come from St. Emilion and Pomerol: the superstars are Pétrus and Cheval Blanc. Figeac, Canon, Lafleur are only a few of the many successes here.
