2004 Chateau Latour, 1er Cru Classe, Pauillac
|Grape variety:||Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Origin:||France, Bordeaux, Médoc|
Dark red. Nose mainly toasty oak but quite complex, with brooding dark fruit evident underneath. Palate has a moderate weight of appealing cedary fruit and firm but ripe tannins. Austere but stylish. Serious. Drink 2014-24.
Deep dense colour, concentration of leafy blackcurrant fruit, succulent and full of flavour, quite approachable crunchy gourmand fruit, backed by a precise, crystal-clear expression of vineyard length, big wine but no hint of heaviness, superb structure and balance, triumphantly successful. Drink 2015-50. (19.5 points)
