Medium red. Roasted currant, lead pencil, grilled nuts, tobacco and minerals on the nose. Smooth, vinous and concentrated, with lovely depth of flavor and ripe acidity for the vintage. Finishes with even tannins and excellent length. A very successful '97.

A disappointment. This bottle looked more evolved and paler than the Lafite. Rather light and sweet. Definitely atypical Latour in an off vintage. Lacks lift and vivacity. Solid but rather simple with a very dry finish. I’m giving quite late drinking dates on the assumption that this wine will behave like other vintages of Latour – even though it doesn’t taste like them.

Drink Dates 2000-2014

A flavorful, savory Latour, without a great deal of density or power, the 1997 exhibits sweet, walnut-tinged, black currant fruit intertwined with minerals and subtle wood. Nicely-textured, with adequate acidity, ripe tannin, and a medium-bodied finish, this smooth effort should drink well for 12-14 years.

Delicious now. Lovely aromas of tobacco, toasted oak, cherry and meat. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a soft and fruity aftertaste.--Latour vertical.

Should have decanted for a longer period of time. We drank this after our '67 Latour, which was so much better in every aspect and overshadowed this great bottle.

not bad for an off year. Little thin for a Latour but pleasant enough. Drink now.

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.
