  1. CHATEAU LATOUR 2004 PAUILLAC

    Item #: i_353160
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    WINE ENTHUSIAST 97 POINTS - "There are tannins, structure and power, but also supreme elegance. The 2004 acidity comes through in the sweet cassis flavors, supported at the back by dry tannins. Currently, the wine is closed up, losing some of its fresh fruit, but this is a moment in its slow evolution towards a classic Latour."

    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "A terrific effort from Administrator Frederic Engerer and owner Francois Pinault, the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Latour exhibits a strong cassis character intermixed with notes of crushed rocks, earth, cedar, and forest floor. Racy, elegant, but powerful with medium to full body, and sweet tannin, it will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades. It is a very impressive offering."

    WINE SPECTATOR 95 POINTS - "Captivating aromas of currant, black licorice and spices, with just a hint of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Structured and racy."

  2. HAUT BRION 2004 PESSAC-LEOGNAN

    Item #: i_350413
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Enthusiast: 96
    WINE ENTHUSUAST 96 POINTS - " Of the pair of châteaux, La Mission Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion (both owned by the Dillon banking family) that face each other across the crowded streets of Pessac, Haut-Brion is the one with the structure, the darkness, the brooding character. This is so true of 2004, with its hugely firm structure underlying the initial supple fruit. At the end, the acidity is an enticing surprise, lifting the aftertaste."
