The 1996 Latour is a perfect 100! It is one of best Latour's I have ever tasted and compares to my favorite 1982 Latour. The 1996 Latour maintains an intense dark purple color with a massive full body and no tannin. This is a classic Latour and can last for another 25+ years! Enjoy now or save for a long term investment!

6 hour decant. Reticent. Not revealing much initially yet one can see the fabulous structure. Fruit hiding but glimpses gradually emerge from underneath the regal tannins. Slight acidity and bite but by the end of the bottle, we were clamoring for more. In 10 years this will explode.

Deeply colored with a nose that is just beginning to open. Intense pure Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of dark cherry fruit and cassis with raw beef, spice, mint, herbs, and some undergrowth thrown in for good measure. Very complex despite the wine?s evident youth. Thick and powerfully constituted with significant but integrated tannins and acidity. Muscular yet elegant and graceful. Beautiful stuff ? the epitome of top flight masculine Bordeaux. This bottle was more forward than I expected.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
