    June 1, 2020 - Once again a half soaked cork. Clear, clean. Nose muted at first, then developing strawberry and cherry, earth and brown sugar. In the mouth this felt far fruitier than my last bottle. Immediate swoosh of ripe sweet strawberry and a sense of cola creaminess. Then came the acid sourness of cherry. This feels way younger than I expected. The palate now develops the cola theme, adding back the earthy, fungal notes and finishing with a medium- acidity. Alcohol at 14% isn’t really noticeable, this feels light on its feet. It isn’t overly complex but it is a fine bottle to drink without fuss.

    November 16, 2019 - This has gracefully matured into a really nice Corton with pretty, somewhat delicate red fruit with lots of earthy, mushroomy sous bois undertones. Delightful!!

    November 11, 2019 - Red fruit (cherry), spice, slight sous bois, nice floral, earth, good acidity. Bright fruit. Needs a couple hours air. Popped & poured. Lingering finish. Really enjoyable.

    February 2, 2019 - Similar to Chablis28, this far exceeded my low expectations and validated an impulse purchase a few years ago. Very classic Burgundy with good fruit and a surprisingly elegant feel. Good now, and should hold.

    July 24, 2018 - I've been guilty of walking around this btl and even wondering why I bought it? Louis Latour can be a very mixed bag and often delivers uninspired Burgundy. This btl surprised me to the upside to a significant extent and was a fine example of mature and tertiary Burgundy intrigue. Semi translucent ruby red color. Opened and PnP two small glasses. I let the rest slow ox in btl for about 45 minutes prior to dinner. This was pretty chilled (likely sub 50 degrees?) coming directly from my wine cabinet and started out a little lean on the first test sip. I wrapped a towel around the btl as I don't like drinking reds much above 62 degrees and let it slowly gain a few degrees in temp. The wine fleshed out nicely within 30 minutes in my glass. This offered layers of; red & dark raspberry, mineral, mushroom and sous bois on both the nose and palate. Elegant and ethereal with plenty of energy but the structure is fully resolved. Great for drinking now and over the next couple of years. Paid $40 and that was a steal. 92+pts.
