With 100 points from both Parker and Suckling, we urge you to buy into this big blind - a river of opulent black fruit, dense tannins and rocky mountain dust. The scores are astronomical across the table, which is a pretty strong tell that this one isn’t bluffing; you’re looking at pocket aces. So...you gonna fold, or are you all in?
Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby—this needs time!
Dark and chocolatey with a lot of richness, but also a cool herbal freshness this is a very impressive Medoc wine that's already delicious to drink. Very long, surprisingly supple finish for this château. A perfect wine. Drink or hold.
