Vintage information 1961:

In the late seventies, this was considered as good as 1959 and better than 1962. Today it has slipped behind those two vintages a little, but many very wines can still be found.

1961 Morin Père et Fils, Pommard Les RugiensMay. 2009
Medium-pale colour but still with plenty of red. The nose is soft and more than a little earthy with a hint of sweetness. In the mouth it retains a masculine lick of tannin and there’s a good length. Clean and alive
1961 Quenot Max Fils et Meuneveaux, Corton BressandesMay. 2009
If any thing the colour is yet younger. The nose is sweeter, still with plenty of fruit – a little roasted. In the mouth it’s clearly more sweetly red fruited than the Pommard, minimal tannin and has a lovely balance. The finish is a good one. I would say this is just about ready – and it’s also very tasty!
