Intense dark ruby core with good vibrant brownish rims. Nice expressive nose of tobacco, cigar box, dried herbs, earth and some blackcurrant. Beautiful and elegant nose. Simply the nose of the night among the 3 aged wines. Smooth, supple and elegant, along with tobacco, cigar box, earthy and chalky notes. Still got nice freshness and blackcurrant on palate with balance acidity. Long lingering finish with soft chewy tannins. Not too impressive but it has nice balance and harmony. Amazing and what a surprise! This bottle is holding up nicely and lovely to drink. Another difficult vintage but it manage to transcend the poor and uneven vintage.
Brick red with light brown hue Strong expression of its Cab Sau dominant blend, blackcurrant, dried herbs, tobacco, cigar box Mint, sweet cassis, still possess good acidity Ave mid palate and good finishing
PnP at home. Better than expected but clearly not in the same league as the very good Latour from the same (bad) '72 vintage last year. Top shoulder fill. Bottom of cork crumbled and could not extract. A healthy ruby/light garnet with an only slightly browning rim. Earthy nose, strawberries on the palate, some leather. Relatively high acidity. Fine tannins. Rather short finish. Held up well in the open bottle before deteriorating around the 3h mark. 86-87
