LeDomduVin: Weekend wines

Weekend wines

Besides Clos des Lambrays 2005 and Château L'Evangile 2000, I also opened, prepared, decanted, and served these 3 bottles during the weekend. 

Domaines Leflaive Macon-Verzé 2016
Easy going and refreshing, with light yellow fruit aromas, white flowers, and buttery notes mingling with good acidity and mineral nuances. 

Château Margaux Margaux 1990
Not the best example, unfortunately. The cork was dry and discolored, and the bottom of the cork cracked and fell into the bottle. The nose seemed old and dusty, and the wine tasted rather off and unbalanced, despite a "reviving" attempt by decanting it to give it a boost (while I didn't want to decant it in the first place), the wine showed only little sign of life. Bad bottle. 

Château Latour Pauillac 2009
A young and powerful wine, with great aging potential, boasting lots of ripe dark berries and black fruits, chocolate, coffee, leather, graphite, earth, mineral and oaky aromas and flavors, great complexity, balance, structure and texture, and a long-lasting finish. Showed really well after 2 hours of decanting, but still too young to drink now in my opinion.  Another 5 to 10 years would be good to release its full potential. 

Santé! Cheers!
