Wine Description

(1953 Vintage) Consistent notes except for cont'd softening of tannins with age; Med dark ruby w/amber edge; impressive nose; not too tannic; lovely Cabernet fruit; med.-full body; beautifully balanced, very ripe, almost sweet fruit; some of the leaness (esp. mid=palate) & hardness of the vintage but not austere, esp. for a Latour; long, complex, intense & elegant. Ready now but with plenty of life ahead

    First growths dinner 70 Mouton 75 Latour 75 Haut Brion 85 Margaux. Needed a bit of time to soften. Representative of Latour pedigree. Strong and masculine.

    (2007 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Fairly deep brick-red; sweetish nose, cedar, mushroomy; soft but stalky, drying out, quite butter finish; fairly short. Drink fast.
