I have for sale one bottle of Chateau Latour 1970 (right hand bottle) which is a superb wine scoring 95 points in recent years by Robert Parker as well as winning wine of the night at a Farr Vinters 1970s Wine Dinner last month.

The cheapest this can be purchased is £420 per Wine-Searcher my reserve is well below this.

January 30, 2018 - Fireworks for January: plethora of top wines with great friends (Black Salt Restaurant, Washington D.C.): Certainly fresher than the Haut Brion 1970, tasted just before. A sweeter nose and more pure. There is a succulence to this wine. Something like the 1990 but not as focused or as concentrated. Recently having had the Palmer 1970, and this has more verve and more grip. It is really drinking nicely, but just not as pleasurable as the 1990.

January 6, 2018 - Amazing, bottle was 5 days open, still nice drinkable, a lot of earthy notes, black tea and tobacco leaves, no more fruits left after this Long time of opening. 92-93

December 9, 2017 - Drank at The Grill in NYC. This wine is still going strong! Plenty of life ahead of it. I found that this improved over the course of the hour we drank it. Very elegant yet still holding on to some tannic backbone, it’s amazing how old this is relative to how well it’s drinking.
