After the Latour, they served this one and immediately one thought that it should have been served the other way around....but then again...

This wine had 95% of what the latour presented so it was a lovely wine indeed, in all the same types of ways but it presented a spicier, sexier side with just a bit of attention past the mid palate. It was unique and very expressive, very different than the regal Latour. The Mouton was sexier is the only way I can describe it. At the end of the night I could not decide which one I'd like more, only that both were great and different.
