Slow ox 8 hours, which seems to be great for this wine.
Drunk with dinner with an 86 Lafite
Blood red color with nice color gradient to light red edge. Looks much younger than it is. Leather, mushrooms, truffle, cherry. Beautiful nose, very aromatic. Tannins seem to be holding well, but not overbearing. Second transition hint of mint, some green flavors, smoke, cedar, and a little spiciness.
Mouthfeel is pure silk. Amazing balance in this wine.
So perfumie, third transition is wet soil, forrest floor some cranberry Parmesan cheese and some dusty leather boot.
So many great transitions - amazing wine. Crushed the Lafite.
Bordeaux : Chateau Latour 1982
