1971 Château Latour à  (Pomerol) 94

Sexy, earthy, and truffle filled, this is just great. With the texture of pure silk, the ripe, earthy cherries feels as good as they taste. There is no need to wait, or decant, just pop and pour.

Popped and poured, this got better and better in the glass over our 3 hour dinner. Concentrated, luscious and complex, the truffle, dark cocoa and black cherry carried through from the nose, to the opulent, lush finish. Fully mature, this is a beauty for current drinking.

This bottle was rocking'! Filled with dark chocolate covered cherries, truffle, fig, and plums on the nose and palate. Concentrated, rich and sensual, the finish stuck with you. Happy to own a few more of these treasures in my cellar.
