We drank with our meal well-known labels and vintages.
As an aperitif, and with Jabugo and Soubressade, Bollinger, good, but not too winey, balanced.
Latour 2002 powerful, modern, successful RP 96
Latour 2001 finesse, class, again a success RP 95
Latour 2000 great, top wine, modern, powerful and suave, opulent, fat, we could have drunk another bottle ... RP 98 and we agreed fully.
Latour 1999 RP 94, hard to taste after the others
Latour 1998 RP 90, deserves more, even if the right bank was particularly spoiled in 1998, Latour was pretty good.
Hurrah for this 2000 and this is true that these wines do not taste too old.

With desert, a complete harmony between ice and orange cake, Yquem 2002 and 1998, there are worse meals. Especially with a nice atmosphere, and as it was not enough, Cognac Tesseron 29 as a digestive, a huge rum (South America?) And other sweets. Fortunately, I was not driving. Too bad all those bottles drunk forced to do without a glass clearner, that's life in a castle, one must choose.
