I found this on Decanter. Unfortunately, 1972 sucked big time (for wine).
Here’s what Decanter says:
Your vintage: 1972
It’s probably best to gloss over the shortcomings of this particular vintage, although if you’re really desperate to get hold of a birthday bottle, you might find some drinkable reds from either Burgundy or the Rhône. Alternatively, you might like to pretend you were born the previous year.
