Decanted for four hours. My least fave of the 5 86 Firsts. A little disjointed.

Bright young colour still, nice flavours despite its youth and on the palate very balanced, long finish

And then there was this beauty. Generous, good weight and very typical Latour of structure finely offset with finesse. Again tasted blind and open about 4-5 hours.

I was so nervous about proposing recently that I forgot my two birthyear wines I had saved for almost a year. Happy Belated to ME! Still celebrating the engagement too. A lot to celebrate! To those who are wondering if 86s are approachable yet, they are. This wine had been solid as a rock forever, but today it was seamless. Dank and pretty, intense cassis and black currant and blackberry reduction. Somehow fresh cut floral notes like lavender and cherry blossom. Fresh earth tone to it with an endless iron steel like mineral finish. Complimented by a rich wood tone. Perfectly softened tannins. This bottle was a milestone for me.

Dark fruits, licorice, graphite, iron shaving, dried flowers. Big yet elegant, smooth texture, great balance, polished tannins. Precision based, still needs time.

I am a huge Latour fan and this 3 L was exquisitely opulent.
