Gorgeous perfume of smoke, cedar, creme de cassis, flowers, crushed rocks, and blackberries. Massive and multi-layered, with huge richness and low acidity. The level of intensity builds prodigiously in the mouth.
Refined and beautiful. Intense aromas of blackberry, licorice, currant and mineral. Full-bodied, with a long, long finish.
Explosive aromas of plum liqueur, currant, minerals and lead pencil. Huge, lush, sweet and utterly seamless...
What makes a great Latour is a sense of completeness, of restrained power and of levels of complexity which the other first growths rarely achieve. That's why Latour 2003 is a great wine.
...Glowing. Lovely depth, smoothness and glamour. This is the business! Long and fresh and wonderfully well balanced.
