Opened two bottles of this and they were awful. Decided to give it another go and this one was really nice. The smell on the cork was already promising. Initially the taste was good but a little light, but fully opened up over the next four hours with lots of red and black fruit and tobacco with a balanced acidity. Loved it!!
Unbelievable, beating the Terreus '03 and the Clinet '05, This Les Forts was so easily to recognize as Latour or Les Forts with its magical cigarbox expression. I was wrong with the vintage, guessing '71 or '85. This wine from a modest vintage had the Latour bouquet, just that slightly severe taste and body with impressions (still!) of dark fruit, very good backbone, long aftertaste, no frays due to age. To repeat, unbelievable; only Latour can do this. My advice, enjoy your remaining bottles soon. A perfect choice of my friend Loek.
Very good color, not that much fading. The nose is fragrant and mature, showing cedar, smoke, flowers, and mature red fruits. This is medium full body on the palate, showing very good concentration. Good finesse. The fairly long finish shows good acidity and the char of the barrels. Integrated tannins.
wonderful soil tones The wine looks Ruby colored. The legs are Fast. It smells like Blackberry, and Raspberry. It tastes like Dust, and Rose. The body is Light/Medium. The wine has Smooth texture. The wine finishes Medium.
