Dark gold. Butterscotch, lemon custard, slightly aldehydic. Very mature.

Another seamless wine from a #magnum. This was the heyday of #LouisLatour whites and my favorite white #Burgundy vineyard went it's on. No doubt--this one was spot on--FORMIDABLE!!! #1990 #grandcru #cortoncharlemagne

Ginger and stone fruit. Got better and better with air. Last sip was the best. Loved this.

Deep gold, long, unctous, alive and dense. A nice pair to both white truffle risotto and milk and honey dessert. A chameleon.

Wonderful concentration and depth of flavor! Balance and good fruit texture. Joyful mature white burgundy!

#winenight #taipei #louislatour #cortoncharlemagne #grandcru #burgundy paired with starter salad dish and flamed sashimi white fish.... 1990 and definitely showing age, which I personally really enjoy the caramel and butterscotch that's coming through, not in a foul way.... It's like a slick middle aged man not afraid to show his age...
