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

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

Tasted at Latour, much better than the '03. Classy Pauillac just entering its early drinking window. #pauillac #bordeauxinbordeaux

Chateau Latour is my favorite 1st Growth, they demand patience and inspire not just hedonistic pleasure but also analytical thought.

Both amazing but need massive amounts of air or another 15-20 years minimum in the cellar. I get the feeling they both will hit a plateau once they blossom and slowly move towards full maturity for decades.

The nose on the 2005 rose with little agitation and shot from the hip to nose with ease. By far the most youthful and I tense nose of the evening.

The 2000 was not dissimilar in its progression, if a bit more refined from the extra few years in the glass. A cerebral wine that was also deeply pleasurable, it kept bringing me to what this wine will be like in 15-20 or more years. Easily a 50 years wine from a macro view.

A parched and arid growing season, quenched with late season rain. Dark and layered tannins. Prevalent pyrazines and eucalyptus on the finish. Dark fruits, pencil lead, figs and hookah tobacco.

Dominated by youthful fruit and oak, but super polished. Will become very special in years to come.
