    July 14, 2022 - I had a chance to taste three vintages ('90, '95, '04) of Latour within a week while traveling in Norway. This bottle was my least favorite. Seemed muted and just never gave us much during the evening.

    July 8, 2022 - It has been close to a decade since I last this wine. The time in the cellar has added a lot here. Still youthful, some secondary characteristics have started appearing. Now you find cigar wrapper, creme de cassis, oyster shell, smoke, forest floor, cranberry, and red plums. Full-bodied, powerful, tannic, and with a gentle austerity, there is a firmness in the finish that works perfectly with all the layers of ripe, crisp, red berries. 2 hours in the decanter works well here. Drink from 2025-2065.

    June 26, 2022 - Still bit of a beast. Heavy pencil aromas.

    June 15, 2022 - Not sure if bottle variation but a very different experience to earlier this year. The wine was in teacher mode, I was the naughty schoolboy, constantly being told off for having the temp not perfect, wrong food (hated tartare, liver parfait, cheese, in fact anything). Splash decanted 2 hours prior then decanted during dinner.

    May 29, 2022 - A lovely medium-bodied Latour showing the terroir very well now with delicious flavors of black fruits, sweet earth and walnuts. Layered with smooth tannins and a voluptuous mid-palate that leads to a fine finish with notes of smoked earth and minerals. Years to go here but its definitely reached its plateau of maturity. I think it lacks the depth and refinement of the best vintages of Latour but let's see where it goes over the next decade or so.

    (Château Latour Grand Vin) Chateau Latour Vertical with Robert Parker and Latour's Frederic Engerer: Reticent earthy, berry nose; tight, showing a little coffee and cedar fruit, but so tight I found it hard to drink now; earthy, dry finish
