  • 1990 Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne

    From another great looking bottle with a 1 cm fill. The color was very light and fresh again.

    After 5 hours of air this wine was hitting on all cylinders. Please see my prior notes for details.

  • 1966 Château Latour Grand Vin

    From a bottle with a slightly depressed cork (branded) and a high shoulder fill, this wine had a very deep red center and orange rims. The medium+ intensity nose went through a number of phases. In the end, it showed currants, mocha, walnuts, black spices, and soil.

    As with the nose, this wine went through a number of phases during its 4 hour aeration. It was somewhat angular and first and then somewhat watery. After 4 hours it was medium bodied with nice richness and fantastic length. It displayed gorgeous balance. It was ripe, structured, and yet still danced on your palate. The tannins were noticeable but rounded and the acidity was firm.

    This wine was impressive. It became better and better with air so I would encourage extended decanting. This will easily last for many decades. However, I doubt it will get better. An excellent showing!

  • 1990 Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne

    From a great looking bottle with a 1 cm fill, this wine had a light yellow center and clear rims. After 4+ hours the nose showed acacia flowers, lemon, almond paste, and white stone.

    This wine was quite tight when first poured and would have scored around 89-90 for the first couple hours. It was still so young tasting even after 4+ hours in a decanter!

    Broadbent speculated that this may be the best LLCC ever. I wouldn't go that far. However, it is up there with the best. It had great weight, lovely balance, and superb persistence.

    This particular bottle Would have easily lasted 10 more years and possibly improved. Very impressive!
