Cedar, tobacco, leather and red fruit. Far from maturity but delicious!

Not a bad lunch wine tar and dark earthy notes on the front nose palate well balanced and supple a cross between dark fruit and earth. First growth at lunch!! Yum

The end all be all of Bordeaux estates in my opinion. This is spectacular. My favorite wine of the entire trip. Decanted 2 hours before our arrival to the chateau. There is just so much power and beauty in the wine. Elegant was not something I was expecting from this estate but this was ethereal. The aromas were haunting of strawberry jolly ranchers and a sea of rose petals. Suave but firm tannins on the end let you know that this wine was birthed from gravelly soils along the Gironde. I absolutely fell in love with this estate when I was blessed enough to visit.

I was not blessed with the greatest birth vintage for Bordeaux (1991), but luckily my dear friend fared better (1989). Red currant, raspberry coulis, cedar, and graphite - the wine is still so fleshy, round and clean, nowhere near as tertiary as I'd expected going into the evening. It's structured, but also rather open knit after a quick decant. I hope to taste this Latour again in the coming years - as I believe it has many stories yet to tell. A special wine shared with even better company - there are worse ways to spend a Tuesday night.

And well, why not on a Wednesday? A 90 minute decant helped the brett blow off and reveal some elegance.

Dark red fruit, mushroom, hint of smoke. Perfectly mature.

A few years younger than the vintage last night. Similar dirt, forest floor, mushroom and dark red fruit with a hint of smoke.

Complex nose with black fruit, wet forest floor, graphite and crushed slate. Complexity carries through the palate, however finish borderline flat.

Impressive at 27 years. Still youthful and full of structure.
