Medoc crus classes 2009
Château Latour, Pauillac 1CC
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: SB 18 AG 17 SS 17
Supple blackcurrant fruit and fine, smooth texture. Rich and quite dense, without being too extracted. Oak gives a light chocolatey tone, but it doesn’t dominate the concentrated, dark fruits. Persistent and long, with an assured and complex future.
Price £1,075–£1,400 Widely available at leading Bordeaux merchants, including Bordeaux Index
Judges: Steven Brook, Alun Griffiths MW and Steven Spurrier
