Came close enough to the '55 Latour that I had to think hard about it for a minute!

#birthyearwine. What can I say. Still going strong. Silky tannins and acidity was fantastic. Tobacco and leather components. Fruits were subdued but just giving hints to the power bit once held. 1970.

Comes on strong after some time in glass. Needed to kick that bottle funk at the beginning!

You know the vintage but they need to be consumed, all of them, now. Look for the underrated impressive 1971 values.

1970. Smooth, light. Slightly sweet finish.
