My very last bottle. Except for the orange at the rim this bottle tasted young.

(95+ pts for me at this point).
This just keeps getting better and better.

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

The nose on this beast was my favorite part. Still has plenty of life ahead of it. Quite a treat.

"Perfect" Bordeaux, essentially. Beauty. Grace. Power. Ease. Notably special wine.

WOTN vs a blockbuster line-up at Cafe Baloud in West Palm Beach on 4/28. Loads of power and concentration but it's a standout for it's plush balance, sexy freshness and astounding vibrancy. This is a 27 year old wine but the fruit is still a centerpiece of this wine and it makes you take notice. Elegant tannic structure with warming fig, expresso and cassis flavors that fill your mouth with hedonistic pleasure. The second '90 Latour @Martin G Rivard pulled out that weekend.

Had a quarter bottle left from our extravaganza a few days ago. Absolutely mind blowing good at this point. Might as well finish it while I'm prepping the wines for this evening's adventure!

Really shining right now, still quite intensely fruit driven, but all the right development & balance, classic Pauillac, has another 20-30 years in it.
