IW, seek out Rioja... I have had so SO many great wines from '64 vintage.

Many great Champagnes too, but costly now.

1964 Bodegas Faustino Rioja Faustino I Gran Reserva $175 ... I would buy.

1964 Monte Real Gran Reserva, Spain $100 ... I would buy.

1964 Bodega Gomez Cruzado Honorable Rioja Gran Reserva $100 ... No first hand experience.

1964 Castrijo Gran Reserva $170 ... Do not know this wine.


IW, as I said before. This is such a stellar vintage, and I have had more great '64's than I can remember.
