"Latour is unquestionably the most consistent of Bordeaux’s first growths.

"True to its reputation this wine is as remarkable in the finer vintages as in the lesser ones.

"Generally powerful, tannic, rich, dense, and intense, the wines of Latour are always top flight and extremely long-lived."

— Robert Parker

94 Very classy with plenty of raspberry, currant, and liquorice character. This is dense and compacted on the palate. Leave it for at least two or three years from now.
