Lot size: 1 bottle of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1965 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Mid Shoulder (MS)Question Mark Grape variety:

We opened up a bottle with a fairly low level (mid shoulder) but with no signs of seepage or corrosion on the capsule. And what a surprise this was : this semi translucent maroon fluid diffused a stunning array of smells immediately after pouring.This was the lovely combination of wonderful aromas you’d only expect from a great classic Bordeaux from an excellent vintage, but nonetheless,here it was : sweet fruitiness (red cherries and berries, ripe plums), tobacco and tar, forest floor, cedar and cigar box and on top of that some more exotic smells of 5 spices, incense and a whiff of those spanking new leather sandals you just bought in expectation of great summer days to come. On the palate it luckily performs with equal bravado, there’s no denying the quality here : great balance, it’s still fruity and woody, has great alcoholic warmth and depth and finishes with peach skin soft tannins and a juicy
freshness that keeps it all incredibly vibrant and surprisingly youthful. If there ever is a wine you’d want to put in a blind tasting to simply stun everyone, the 1965 Latour definitely is it! Great class!

Other details

The Label is in good condition, however the capsule has corroded through (see picture). The level being mid shoulder suggests very little seepage for the year.
