1995 Latour

Post by Blake Brown » Fri Oct 01, 2010 10:42 pm

Drinking beautifully now at an early age. Full of vibrant dark fruit with great complexity and depth after an inviting nose of black cheery, cedar and spice. Wonderful length which goes on and on. Consistent notes with a few previous experiences. Can I keep my hanks off of the remaining bottles? Yes, the evolution is worth the wait.

Sorry for the long delay in responding to your note posted ages ago. We've been focused on getting the main site up and running.

I agree with you on 95 Latour.

One of the more affordable Latours. Last time I had it (about 2 years ago) it was really quite strong. I prefer 1996, but will want to see how they evolve over the years

Yum! The 95 Latour made quite an impression for me!! I totally agree... and, great tasting note too! Nice and concise (I can never be so concise and to the point, I don't know why :) Any help is appreciated!

95 is such a nice vintage that is still somewhat nicely priced. Other 95's I love is Mouton, Lafite, Haut-Brion, Palmer, Las Cases, Comtesse, Lynch Bages, and looking very much forward to my first 95 Margaux in a weeks time.

Christer- another '95 favorite of mine is Angelus.

I forgot I even posted this thread until I discovered it while browsing through. In response to my own question, "can I keep my hands off this and let it evolve", the answer is evidently "No". Just had another and with consistent notes to those posted, it is magnificent now with great potential to go into new heights. For those who have 6 or more and have not tasted it, open one and see for yourself. The pleasure will be all yours.

And FWIW, the 90` Latour is showing beautifully now as well.
