2003 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac
|Date tasted:||6 April 2006|
|Price when tasted:||£9.99-10.49|
Dense blackcurrant fruits on the nose, cedary oak. Very complex and robust palate, lots of clean black fruit characters, powerful with rich oak flavours. Needs some time. Drink up to 2016.
Delicious barrel-fermented Chardonnay that knits together extremely well. The nose is fairly restrained with a good balance of citrus fruit, nutty oak, and just a whiff of smoke. The palate is similarly well judged and vibrant, with fresh acidity, bright primary fruit and smooth oak integration. £9.99-10.49
