Magnum. Like the 1983, one of the richer vintages in this collection, although as Engerer reminded us this was a vintage that looked for many weeks as though it would never ripen and was saved by some fine weather in September. Nowadays, crop thinning and greater risk-taking would probably result in riper wines. Sinewy and complex. Good for drinking now.

Medium garnet-colored with moderate amber at the edge, the 1978 Latour offers a spicy, saddle leather, tobacco, dried herb, earthy nose with sweet fruit trying to poke through. Interestingly, new oak also makes an appearance in the flavors. Medium-bodied, elegant, and fragrant, but possibly beginning to dry out, this fully mature wine requires consumption over the next decade.

Better than I anticipated. A sleek and racy wine.Ruby-amber color. Aromas of cedar, cigar box,tobacco, mint and mushrooms, with hints of redfruits, follow though to a medium body with finetannins and a long, silky finish. Excellent now,but a little more bottle age would only improveit.--Latour vertical.

Tasted 11/7/09. Cork was intact but may not last more than another year or two. Took about 1 hour to open up. Velvety smooth with nose and taste of earth. Fragrant with fruit after 30 years! Amazing wine. Drink now!
