Like the 1968, the 1966 is a blend of 50% Grenache Noir and the remainder white grapes – Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Macabeu and Tourbat. The 1966 does not quite possess the exuberance of the 1968, but it has a light smoke, raisin and a touch of dried dates. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. It is lighter, harmonious and balanced with a straight-laced, linear finish that is precise, but not as concentrated as the 1968. It just feels a little enervated compared to some of the others. Tasted December 2012.
