Take a deep breath…
The wine was a clear bricking red and looked matured enough.
Decanted, it was floral and spicy on the nose hinting maple, cassis infused with tobacco, coffee, cedar, walnut and black fruits. The wine was a little dense and tannic. Well, what do I know? These were reviews found online, lol…
But what I knew was sad to say, it lacked middle and finish. Perhaps there wasn’t enough decanting time.
Although the 1990 is an easy drinking Latour, it is not at the top level Latour is producing today starting with the 95.
In comparison to 1990, I think 1996 is more stunning even though the latter is cheaper by a whopping S$3k.
