Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) The 2011 Latour has a wonderful soapy Cabernet nose. Etherial though perhaps lacking some volume at the moment. The palate reveals a granite-chiseled Latour but with a real skip in its step: lots of vibrational energy. The tannins feel just a little bit exagerated at the moment and dominate the persistent finish.

    (2002 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Dense, almost black colour, really superb nose of blackcurrants, tobacco and cedar, very elegant and full of hidden power, the product of a great terroir matched to very intelligent wine making, has 'creamy' tannins due to the ripeness of the Merlot, yet
  • Wine Advocate
    (1996 Vintage) Concentrated, Cassis, Mineral, Full-bodiedWine Advocate - 1st Growth, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France-" A spectacular Latour...phenomenally sweet, pure aromas of cassis infused with subtle minerals. This massive offering possesses unreal levels of extract, full body, intensely ripe, but abundant tannin, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute."
