Tasting Notes and Scores
Robert Parker''s Wine Advocate 23/04/2001
Latour''s second wine exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a nose of black fruits, ketchup, earth, and minerals. Moderately tannic and closed, it is reminiscent of its bigger brother. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the next two decades.
Intense purple. Similar colour to the First wine but with less intensity on the nose. Tannic and a fine vanilla finish. Well-integrated New Oak. Medium length. Superb 2nd wine.
Deep red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant and tobacco. Juicy, pure, intensely flavored and sharply focused; has a penetrating minerality that carries through to the firmly tannic finish. Should develop quite slowly.
