Tasting notes

05/06/2008

Very good deep red, rich and crunchy spicy fruit, lovely expression with great purity and good length, will certainly gain depth in bottle, but the fruit is upfront now and is described by Frederic Engerer as 'just a baby'. A surprisingly youthful Latour and perhaps one of the best expressions of this lightish, but charming vintage. Drink 2014-25. (17.5 points - Steven Spurrier)

Black-red, full of crunchy, spicy fruit, with great purity and length, not yet showing the power of its 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, still almost a baby and will gain weight and depth in barrel and bottle. Drink 2014-25. (17.5 points)
