1966 vintage. Fully mature flavors. Very savory

Opened without proper aeration and after way too many bottles consumed before it. With the little time it did have, it really hit the mark, and didn’t really show much progression from LBT. Delicious, somewhat stern, and would absolutely crush it with the right food. Turned leaves, leather, crushed currants, wet stones and sous bois, this was gorgeous on the last sip. The acid is fresh and structurally the tannin have a taut and graininess to them. Really adds to the mineral dimension this wine has.

So this happened. Amazing depth and a finish best akin to the energizer bunny... it keeps going and going. Beautiful Bordeaux, but not a life-changing moment.

Textbook example of balance and restraint. Wine of the night. Poise, balance, grace, and some.
Cinnamon and cherries on the nose. Palate displays a smooth, supple presence. Finishes with black fruits, depth and robust tannins. This has years ahead of it. WOTN for all of us.

From 6L bottles. Full, Rich tannic structure with nice classic Latour character. Unfortunately outshone by the 6L 1989 Chateau Margaux, which was just more elegant and balanced and perfumed
