Issue Issue 108

($350-$499) Full medium ruby. Wonderfully sweet, rich aromas of cassis, minerals and bitter chocolate. A huge wine with almost painful intensity; solid as a rock and at the same time utterly sensual and creamy, with great inner-mouth complexity and depth of flavor and a complete absence of rough edges. "Almost too easy today," says Engerer. Sweet notes of roasted nuts and chocolate add to the wine's early appeal. A powerful, hugely rich Latour with a great building finish and perfectly suave tannins. This was really the last vintage of Latour with a meaningful percentage (3%) of cabernet franc, as the old franc vines were removed after 2000. But Engerer noted that Latour planted 1.5 hectares of petit verdot, which can be expected to represent up to 4% of the blend by 2004.

Dark crimson. Light, bracing nose. Not the most intense Latour vintage but it is at least more Latour than 2000. Very solid and mineral with some lift and I should think no disappointment in the long run, though I would strongly recommend the more expressive Forts in the short term. The grand vin is obdurately dry and introvert at the moment.

The 2000 Latour (a relatively abundant 14,000 cases compared to what they produced in 2009, 2008, or 2005) is "packed and stacked." The extremely rich, black/purple color to the rim is followed by a wine with some subtle smoke, loads of minerals, a hint of vanilla, and plenty of creme de cassis as well as roasted meat and a slight scorched earth character. Broad, savory, and rich, the wine seems to be about 5 years away from full maturity and should drink well for at least 40-50 more years. A great effort, probably eclipsed only by 2003 and 2009.

A young wine that electrifies every taste bud in your mouth. Compacted aromas of crushed currants and minerals, with roses and lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of silky, refined tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Stunning. Best Latour since 1990. 14,165 cases made.

Latour has made truly great wines in the past two decades - and this is one of the best. It has fabulous aromas of black truffles, currants, raspberry and dried flowers. Mind-blowing on the palate, it's an emotional and soulful red.

Dark maroon black colored wine that is nearly opaque with slow moving moderately pigmented legs. A very concentrated but closed nose of black cherry, smoked hickory. Anise, caramel, and cold steel. Powerful but elegant flavors start with a big burst which then drops quickly in intensity but keeps going at a low level for a very long time. New wood eventually overwhelms the wine?s fruit in the finish. Acidity is high and tannins are considerable but balanced. Given this wine?s already vaunted reputation, the wine is a disappointment.

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.
