My 1000th Post - A Bottle Of Château Latour Is Needed!
Any excuse to crack open a bottle of Château Latour is a good one. When I reached my 100th post I opened a 1999 Latour and when I hit 500 posts a bottle of 1931 Latour was opened.
This will be post number 1000 and lets highlight that illustrious moment with another bottle of Latour!
1996 Château Latour
The nose is bottomless deep and hauntingly beautiful with lots and lots of ripe black currants and additional notes of graphite, cigarr smoke, warm rocks and a lovely Ermenegildo Zegna perfumed aroma. Still on the young side of things but oh so stunning.
The taste is very pure, energetic and seamless, with notes of lead pencil shavings, ripe black currants, leather and hot earth. A simply awesome structure, this is built for the ages. A very, very long finish with black, polished tannins. Will hit perfection in 6-10 years. A really great bottle of wine.
