An almost perfect example of well aged Bordeaux

Amazing! Medium mahogany from center to the edge. Clean! This wine is pure class in a glass. Very old world nose of old saddle leather coupled with a tar like smell that made it remind me of an oiled old baseball glove. There was a hint of sweaty socks and some vegitaible aromas along with cigar ash. The nose on this wine rocked. One of the most focused and detailed bouquets i have every had the pleasure to know. In the mouth the wine soft and still plush and no hard edges. This did not drink like a 1970.  One of the better Latours I have had, the best from 1970. Drinking at its peak but can go on for 5-10 more years with ease. 98 points

A First Growth with the Cork inside it v Meridian Merlot
Mar 28, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star

Okay, so I'm not really side by side testing a "leaker" 1970 Chateau Latour vs Meridian Merlot, but if memory serves, this partially oxidated, and certainly weathered first growth would whoop the tar out of Meridian Merlot.  It would dominate a lot of wines I've tasted.  You know why?  Because it's so exceptional that it can travel all over the world, get some sort of damage late in its life, leak all over my jeans and still taste better off of my fingers than most average wines out of premiere Riedel glassware.  The fruit is still making itself known through the very first taste: strawberries sing on my tongue.  Oh, my first First Growth!  How I love thee.

Could I be a little biased?  Perhaps.  But it was certainly palatable.  That's all a girl can really ask for.  As Roger Miller would've said: "Chug-a-lug, Chug-a-lug.  Makes ya wanna holler HOWDY HO!"

Purchased two bottles at a charity auction. Was really looking forward to trying 'top of the world' producer as my wine budget generally is under $100 per bottle.  What a disappointment!  Drank with three other knowledgeable friends and we all it agreed it must have just been past it's prime as both bottles were exactly the same.  No fruit, structure or finish.  Can't imagine having spent $375 per bottle and would not stretch the budget again for this vintage.

This dark colored Bordeaux has a great aroma to it with a blend of venilla, oak and a hint of truffles. It's coloring is dark ruby, inky and purple. This Bordeaux is sweet and has a nice texture on the palate.

This is a very good Bordeaux. This wine looks nice with its dark purple and ruby coloring. With a fragrance that is filled with mixed berry, nuts and vanilla. This full bodied Bordeaux is sure to grow in flavor as it matures. With a high rating of 98 I was very excited to experience this wine.

This is a great Bordeaux. This Bordeaux has a very dense purple and ruby coloring. Making it very inviting to drink. With aromas of liquor stones, graphite, and black cherries this Bordeaux is very lively and fresh. It also has more alcohol and tannin then 2003.

This Bordeaux has a blend of cedar and walnut fragrance. It's coloring is ok it has a kind of purple, garnet color. This Bordeaux is medium to full bodied. This wine needs a bit more maturing.

Not my favorite!!
