Purchased at auction last month among some other older interesting burgs, supposedly well cellared but unknown. I was not expecting too much so took it as a interest wine to a Christmas dinner we traditionaly do with some wino friends. Let it sit for a few weeks before decanting to a carafe and then back into the bottle to keep air contact down. Checked to make sure it was OK from decanter and was immediately taken with how it was completely sitting on its sweet fruit, absolutely no hint of oxidation, the tannins were reserved so as to be hardly evident. This was going to be special in a couple of hours... After having nursed the bottle along with a 96 Leroy Les Beaux Monts for a good 40 minutes walk we settled into the night, a couple of champagnes, a 1999 Clos St Hune - brilliant, a 04 Bouchard Chevelair Montrachet - great, a Chave Hermitage White, and then the 55 Latricieres - perfumed, seamless and elegant, the wine had broadened on the palate and become complete, the tannins silky, a balance and complexity that I felt only 55 years in the bottle could bring, still vibrant and youthful with great length.
