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

All the classic notes; cedar, graphite, tobacco, black fruits, elegance. Simply adorable.

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

This vintage never disappoints. We had the 82 next to the 98. The 82 was perfect. Everything about this wine make you scratch your head and say a few key words: Perfectly Balanced.
Everything is in harmony. Wow., that was freaking good! I love 5 hour lunches!!!

1982 vintage. Very fresh bottle. Not nearly mature but delicious. Strong clove cinnamon note

This was not only the WOTN but is definitely the WOTY for me. My head snapped back in utter amazement as soon as I enjoyed my 1st sniff of the nose. Holy mother of all wines is this bottle absolutely stunning and perfect. It's by far the best wine that I have had the privilege to enjoy. This is exactly what I was expecting from the famed 61!!!!!! It was simply perfect. A truly perfect example of what Latour is and what every Bordeaux blend in the world aspires to be. Utter perfection in its opulence & decadence: blackberry, black currant, intense & soaring aromatics. You could enjoy the nose at arms length!!! Simply & utterly stunning. Thank you Jeff!!!!!!!!!!@Jeffrey Lew
