    Chateau Latour a Pomerol 1961
    Pomerol
    1 capsule cut to reveal cork branding
    Magnum (3)
    "Although the 1947 Cheval Blanc is widely considered to be the 'wine of the century' among collectors, the 1961 Latour a Pomerol also merits a share of the title. Giving points to a wine such as this makes one think of Shakespeare's reflection that "comparisons are odious." To put it mildly, this wine is "off the charts." If I had only one Bordeaux to drink, the 1961 Latour a Pomerol would have to be at the top of my list. Given its phenomenal richness and amazing precision and balance, it can bring tears to one's eyes. Still a saturated dark purple color with no signs of amber, orange, or rust, the nose offers extraordinarily rich, intense aromas of jammy plums, black currants, licorice, and truffles. Port-like, with remarkable viscosity and thickness, as well as a finish that lasts for more than a minute, this wine is in a class by itself." (100pts Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan 1998)
