    March 31, 2022 - Moderate cassis and smoky oak bouquet. Modest concentration and soft. Mature. Medium finish. For a Latour it’s almost gentle. Still, it has good complexity and character, just in a lighter than usual ( for Latour) format.
    Corked popped 4 hours before serving. Beautiful drinking now.

    March 12, 2022 - Private dinner @ Little Cove, Noosa. This wine remains a quite deep crimson purple colour with an immediately forthcoming nose of dark raspberries, blackcurrants, cedar, walnuts and touches of dark chocolate. The palate is graceful yet rich with bright fruit well balanced by tertiary aspects of cedar and cigar box. There is a beautifully poised fine tannin finish that persists nicely with the overall balance living up to this wines classification. A lovely bottle in all respects.

    March 6, 2022 - Completely closed when first decanted. After an hour started to show and after 2, was mostly there. Needs 4 hours likely to get all there. Classic Paulliac, with notes of graphite, black, black fruits, cassis and minerals. Decent tannins and acid well balanced by the bottle age. Medium bodied with perhaps 20 second finish. Terrific, classic paulliac nose after 2 hours decanted. Drank with Keller's Catalan Beef Stew.

    Could last easily another 20 years.

    November 25, 2021 - 2nd of 24, decanted an hour, perfect cork and level, as July bottle, more attractive on classic nose than palate where flavours were tad muddier than in July, muted tannins still a worry, upside I think and no rush. VF (18.5).

    November 13, 2021 - Presented blind alongside three other red wines; another Bordeaux and two Bordeaux blends from CA. All wines were descanted and returned to the bottle 8 hours prior.

    This wine pours a deep garnet with an opaque core. Medium+ viscosity. Medium+ intensity. The nose was a mix of red and dark fruits with currants and cherries, tobacco, pencil shavings, earth, espresso and baking spice. There’s just a whiff of a barnyard in the distance too. On the palate, again the mixed fruit set with beautifully ripened blackberries and black cherries, currants, earth, coffee and baking chocolate. Medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Finishes looooooong, dry and immensely satisfying.

    The wine is balanced and leans towards its structure. I called 2004 Latour. The soaring aromatics were simply incredible. I just wanted to spend the entire evening with my nose buried in the glass. This is squarely in the drinking window yet has many years left in it. Drink now with an extended decant or enjoy over the next 10-15 years.

    (Chateau Latour) #1; COLOR-dark; NOSE-no notes; TASTE-this is extremely complex; very tight in the mid-palate; very soil driven, green (cabbage action, brussel sprout on the back-end); very dry, but very precise; very tight wine; great polish; elegance & pure refinement; this will last for 70 years and will evolve and get more complex; this is classic; tons of fruit (black currant); I love the baseball glove leather aspect; floral components will appear with age; ; RP-95; GV-96+
