Beskrivelse

Château Latour er verdensberømt for at lave vin af topkvalitet i stort set alle årgange og den regnes af mange for verdens bedste rødvin.

Slottet er kendt for deres nådesløse selektering af druerne, således er alle vinstokkene, som er yngre end 10 år, mærket med et bånd for at de ikke skal indgå i Le Grand Vin. Det er som sædvanlig en absolut storartet vin fra dette top slot, mørk i farven, stor i bouqueten og en overvældende smag med mange nuancer, mørke bær, tobak og et stræf af mint, som tilsammen giver en kraftig krop og gode tanniner.

Anmeldelser

  • 95P - Robert Parker Interim End of March 2018:" This is the first vintage to not be offered En Primeur, meaning this is the first commercial release for this wine. It is composed of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with expressive notes of crème de cassis, unsmoked cigars, charcuterie and tapenade on the nose with hints of kirsch and fertile loam plus a waft of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate displays great concentration, sporting beautifully ripe, finely grained tannins, wonderful freshness and a long, savory finish. Just entering its drinking window and still possessing bags of fruit, it should continue to evolve and cellar for a further 15+ years. 2018 - 2033"
  • 94 pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, maj 2016: "The 2006 Château Latour has quite a vibrant bouquet with lively raspberry, wild strawberry, cedar and pencil lead scents that all gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, slightly chewy red berry fruit, a dash of spice, maybe a little tight towards the finish, unlike the Lafite-Rothschild and Mouton-Rothschild. It has a grainy texture and offers fine precision on the finish, although I would have liked a little more persistence to come through, a tad more conviction. It is not quite the revelation of say the 2002 Latour that transcends the limitations of the vintage, yet it still has much to offer."
  • 95 pts Robert Parker, 2009; "The 2006 Latour performed even better from bottle than from barrel. Only 38% of the production (10,000 cases) made it into the grand vin, a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. From barrel, I thought it was a modern day version of the 1996 or 1986, and certainly the 1996 comparison still holds. I thought it was somewhat austere from barrel, but that is no longer an issue. This is a beautifully rich Chateau Latour boasting a dense ruby/purple color, a sweet, smoky, charcoal, cassis, graphite, and forest floor-scented nose, full body, an attractive freshness, and sweet, noble tannins. This layered Latour is one of the vintage-s top dozen or so wines. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.."
  • 95 pts Wine Spectator, marts 2009; " Offers a pure nose of currant and blackberry, with crushed fruit. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and very polished, refined tannins. Long and classy. Best after 2016.-JS."
