    October 6, 2021 - Moderate tannin, decanted for 3+ hours, opened up nicely well balanced full of berries

    August 8, 2021 - There are a few wines in my life that have played such a large part in my appreciation of the truly greatest. Château Latours for decades have beguiled me. . This is the first bottle I have ever had that was out of joint, largely at sixes and sevens, and hopefully, at best, needing another five years. And it was well stored. Deep forest earth, wisps of sophisticated cherry notes, lots of fleeting acid, the regal Latour scent wafting in and out for 2 hours but never sitting down at the table, and some interesting moments overshadowed by acid and youthful appearing fruit.

    July 9, 2021 - Decanted for about an hour before drinking over the next two. Always a pleasure and absolutely ripping. Great perfume-like scent as well. Drink now!

    July 4, 2021 - Popped and poured, and drank over two hours. This thing is ripping! Like all 2001 Bordeaux recently, this is hitting above its weight and open for business. Love this wine!

    May 16, 2021 - Unfortunately my only bottle. More approachable than I imagined. The smell of tobacco here is mesmerizing. Plenty of life and room to develop but worth a pop and four-hour decant if you have a case to enjoy. Will not do the same for my 2000 and 2003 Ch. Latour.
