Château Latour Pauillac 1995
Wine AdvocateA beauty, the opaque dense purple-colored 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanillin, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour. As the wine sat in the glass, scents of roasted espresso and toasty new oak emerged. This classic will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050.
Wine Spectator"An outstanding Latour, offering marvelous character on the nose and palate with its complex layers of blackberry, tobacco, cedar and berries. This first-growth Bordeaux is full-bodied and velvety, with a long fruit and tobacco aftertaste. Best after 2002." (JS)
