...nose somewhat chocolatey, also a whiff of tar; sweet, ripe, very dry...A Fine wine. Long life predicted.
Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour.
Aromas of mint, blackberry and currant rise gracefully from the glass. It's full-bodied, with supple, fine tannins and a long finish. Wonderful texture.
Lush & sweet; thick but delineated. Wonderfully concentrated.
...Hint of mint on the nose – quite aromatic. Pretty. Charming for a Latour grand vin! Though there is a strong undertow of graphite. More intense than 1996.
