($120-$179) Deep red-ruby. Enticing aromas of roasted plum, currant, graphite and smoky oak. Precise, spicy and juicy; more herbal than the 2002 or 2003 but also very intensely flavored and not at all hard. This very long, pure Latour seems to be shutting down today.

Dark crimson. Oyster shells and scent. Sleek and polished. Bit of a lounge lizard but one that is convincing. Fresh and scented – a bit like a spring washing line - with a great positive finish. Very accomplished wine. Can the 2000 really trump this?

A brilliant offering, which should be drinkable much earlier than the blockbuster 2000, the 2001 Latour boasts an inky/ruby/purple color to the rim as well as a glorious bouquet of black currants, crushed stones, vanilla, and hints of truffles and oak. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance primarily Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it reveals a sweetness on the palate that is atypical for such a young Latour. The beautiful integration of tannin, acidity, and wood is stunning. The wine flows across the palate with fabulous texture, purity, and presence. This luscious, full-bodied Latour was surprisingly open-knit on the three occasions I tasted it from bottle. However, do not mistake its aging ability as this 2001, despite its precociousness, will last 20-25 years.

Extremely attractive aromas of blackberries and currants with just a hint of mineral and oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. As it was from barrel; powerful and fast. Serious stuff.

Bottled in July of 2003, this wine showed very well despite the vintage?s lackluster reputation following the much heralded 2000. Black maroon colored wine with significant lightening at the rim and lots of thin pigmented legs. A light but intense nose of sweet fruit, vanilla oak, and cr?me brul?e. Delicious right now with plenty of sweet plumy fruit. Beautifully balanced with excellent length ending with caramel and charred wood. A Latour that will be accessible relatively early in its life. Engerer claims the wine reminds him of the 1988 but riper. I'm a little more optimistic than that. This one of the few 2001s that I would like in my personal cellar.

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.
