Deep red. Aromas of blueberry, plum, leather, tobacco and mocha. Sweet, plummy and pliant, with a creamy, fine-grained texture for the vintage. Very plush wine, richer than the 2006 and at least as long. Finishes with big but ripe tannins.

Quite a star, this wine! Perhaps the surprise of the lot. Very dark crimson and looks a lot younger than the 2005. Very winning and glossy. Dense and savoury unlike 2005's ripeness and sweetness. Youthful and zesty. Beautiful balance. If pushed you could serve this now with a steak.

The estate's second wine continues to go from strength to strength. The 2004 Forts de Latour (includes 75% Cabernet Sauvignon) reveals a deep ruby/purple hue, classic evolved cedary, lead pencil, and cassis characteristics, medium body, beautiful sweetness of fruit, and a more forward, evolved character than its big sibling.

Lots of mineral, currant and berries on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. A bit austere, but there's enough stuffing to back it up.

Shiny ruby color similar to CDP or even pinot noir. Is this gonna lack depth or concentration? Wrong. In a complete contrast to the color, this second of wine of the great Chateau Latour boasts incredible depth and complexity of fruits and terroir!! Started sipping away after 1 hour of decanting and eagerly finished in a 1.5 hour window. Complex aromas of dark chocolate, cedar, gravels, leather, and creamy dark berries and kept evolving. Full bodied with bold but fine tannins. Good concentration. Finishes with dark chocolate covered cherry after-taste for a long, long time.
