Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac, Bordeaux 2006
Still faint traces of violet suggest the fruit has kept its youth intact. Soft tannins on the attack through, and this is really shaping up to be ready to drink. Very pretty, not as powerful as some years but great quality. Beautifully restrained tannins that are still cradling the ripe blackberry fruit. Soaring sense of upward motion, crisp and clean on the finish but falls well below the first wine.
