Meaty deep red fruit. Dark cherry, some soft herbal notes, bloody iron stuff. Still quite primal. Alcohol is noticeable but still quite balanced- particularly with time in decanter. A powerful and intense behemoth. I think this’ll take a long time and may never be pretty but great substance.

1986 vintage. Not at all what you'd expect from Latour. A decent Pauillac that lacks depth and charm.

Dark scarlet. Sweet nose. Has something exotic going on in the mouth, almost as if it was fortified. Notes of red fruit, earth, stones and some funk. Great to drink history.

Dark scarlet color with a deep center. Notes of black cherry, cola, roses, cassis, some spice and a little wood char. Amazing perfume in the nose. Smooth and silky in the mouth. Lots of drama with this one, and many agreed the 59 was better than the 45, the 61 and 82 Latours beside it. Bravo!

Deep scarlet color, almost opaque. Sweet fruit nose. Notes of red and black fruit, spice, some wood and moist dark earth. Has great complexity in the mouth. Awesome juice, but this bottle of the 61 did not reach the superlative heights of others we've had of this.

Scarlet, with a deep dark center and clear rims. Great nose with notes of black fruit, gravel, spice, pencil lead, earth and old cedar desk wood. Mellow and silky in the mouth. High quality juice with decades of enjoyment still in front of it.

Gorgeous plush fruit. Plum, cedar, iodine and salt. Really intense and pure. Gorgeous. Still quite young

Deep and rich and delicious. A hint of band aid. Plush
