    August 5, 2022 - Another Bordeaux classic.
    Cork was seriously compromised, which caused me to worry but needlessly, a great wine for its age.
    Not quite to the 82 Latour of last night but enjoyed immensely.
    Lovely texture, dark fruit still strong and clove like savoury flavours.

    July 16, 2022 - Bit of funk at first, this blew off, nice mixture of red and dark fruits on the nose, some tobacco, flavors were a little more dark fruited, some tobacco, bit of oak influence, well balanced, after a couple hours noticed some buttery malolactic influence which was nice, excellent wine and paired very well with lamb and beef.
