Tar and cooked fruit and black olives on the nose. Soft and tight... hmmm... very young. Beautiful but can be enhanced from 20 additional years? A bit of a short finish. Lunch continues!!!

From magnum. Wow. What a nose- deep and slightly sour and soft leather. Gorgeously broad and complex. Faded roses on the edges but a hefty, complex, subtle core. Wonderful. What a treat. Thank you to Bruce Abbott- so generous

Dark and brooding. Blackcurrant, sage, plummy and blackcurrant. Wonderfully intense and dark. Still a puppy but this is super expressive

Always a pleasure to open such a legendary wine, sadly the ‘00 is still too young

Always a treat to drink legendary wines like this one. Served blind in the garden at my parents house, the settlements weren’t perfect, but still the true quality shone though. Developed dark berries, partially dried and framed by bitter chocolate notes and pronounced minerality. Great finish, broad and self confident. In a perfect spot already.

As close to a 10 as I’ve had. Full bodied, complex, depth, red currant, blackberry, sandlewood, cassis, hints of licorice, infinite finish 💥

Same nose as the ‘95 Forts but less pronounced. More powerful, mushroomy and floral on the palate, Indian spice, more cigar and black currant. In a perfect place.

A nose of pure cassis permeated by light cigar and graphite. Lighter weight than my limited recollection of aged Latours, it was nonetheless ethereal. Young. Blackberry and black-currant jam, lightly cedary minerality. Hints of red meat that made it a perfect match for rib steaks sous vide. Superb!
