Lot #32. Latour 1979

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 90-92 NM.
"A beautiful plummy, aniseed-infused nose. Not powerful, but great balance with prunes, dried leaves and aniseed on palate. A little austere but drinking well now. Better than 1978. Intriguing. A second bottle in December 2004. Again that odd aniseed nose that is so distinct. High-toned, almost New Worldy . . . . The palate is fleshy with notes of redcurrant of coffee . . ." Neal Martin, Wine Journal
Provenance: The Clairmont Cellar
Notes: 2 Very top shoulder, 2 slightly recessed cork, 2 heavily glue stained, 2 mold stained, 2 scuffed labels.
