Sunday, September 16, 2012 - Staggeringly great and vigorous at age 46. Purchased many years ago from Premier Cru and in perfect condition; level just below the neck, moist tight cork, deep, deep ruby. Gorgeous bouquet of black cherry, blackcurrent jam, just a hint of cedar. On the palate, no letdown at all. The silkiest Latour I have ever tasted, bursting with fruit, perfectly round, medium full, sweet. Seems like the Merlot is dominating the Cabernet, whatever the percentages are. It looks and tastes decades younger than it is but the cork and label confirmed it was 1966, not 1996.
