Found a Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1970 – is it crap?

Found this bottle in our new apartment. Storage-wise there is a slight chance the wine survived. The cabinet it was in was very dark and was in a rather cool spot in the apartment. Also, I don't think the bottle has been moved for ages.

What puzzles me is that there is no further information regarding what Châteauneuf-du-Pape it is? Like La Charbonniere, Château Fortia, Beaucastel or anything like that?

I suspect this has always been a sub par wine meant to be sold in supermarkets and feed off of the brand.

Can anyone confirm my suspicion or give any additional info on the wine?
