Lot #24. Latour 1979

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 90-92 NM.
"A beautiful plummy, aniseed-infused nose. Not powerful, but great balance with prunes, dried leaves and aniseed on palate. A little austere but drinking well now. Better than 1978. Intriguing. A second bottle in December 2004. Again that odd aniseed nose that is so distinct. High-toned, almost New Worldy . . . . The palate is fleshy with notes of redcurrant of coffee . . ." Neal Martin, Wine Journal
Provenance: The Maquereau Cellar
Notes: Base neck, very lightly scuffed, slightly recessed cork capsule, very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $550
