Community Tasting Notes 92

    April 20, 2019 - Decanted 45 minutes. Medium intense nose of pencil, graphite, ripe blackberries, violets and light fennel. Secondary truffle notes. Very attractive. Palate is soft with light-medium acidity and very fine, fully integrated tannins. Blackberries and truffle on the palate which softens to gentle brambles with good persistence. This is my last bottle of this and it remains a very good wine from a modest vintage. Great winemaking has made a totally enjoyable, and now fully mature, Bordeaux experience. Chapeau. Drink now.

    March 19, 2019 - Clearly, this is ready prime-time drinking, as it has hit maturity. Elegant, refined, soft, graceful and focused on its sweet, ripe, fresh, red berries, most of the tannin has resolved. The nose is as charming as the palate. This medium-bodied silky expression of Latour will be at its best over the next 12-15 years. If you have a bottle, and you are in the mood for a Latour, now is a good moment to pop a cork.

    March 5, 2019 - A lovely, seamless wine with good depth and balance with flavors of dark earth and black fruits. Rather quiet and not that expressive and I'm sure blind I would've never guessed this was a Latour. Out of Magnum at Commanderie dinner so perhaps it just needs more time. 90?

    December 25, 2018 - Tight and unyielding after 6 hours and the next day. This should be more drinkable than this. You could sense the fine grain tannins, but little fruit and a too acidic. Disappointing.

    December 23, 2018 - Cloudy lite red. Delicious bouquet of cream, boysenberry, and black raspberries. Delightful creamy raspberry notes with an undercurrent if blackberry and a tiny bit of smoke. The creamy berry finish is amazing and lasts forever.

    (Château Latour Grand Vin) Chateau Latour Vertical with Robert Parker and Latour's Frederic Engerer: Black, showing a little dark orange at the edges; vegetal, with berries, mocha, vanilla and caramel on the nose; thick, tight, dry tannins; low on fruit, but showing coffee flavors; long, tannic finish (The tannins did tone down and the wine opened up after an hour or so in the glass.)
