Chateau Latour, 1er Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac

Description

17.5/20 Jancis Robinson - November 2012. Mid crimson with a pale rim. Savoury, burly, earthy nose. Mid weight and some density. Dry finish as though the oak were still in play. Zesty. Quite intense. After 24 hours it looked even paler and more skinny. Pretty rigid but not really very Latour.

96/100 Robert Parker. The wine of the vintage? There are only 10,000 cases of this extraordinarily rich, dense 2002 that is as powerful as the 2003 (even the alcohol levels are nearly the same, 12.85%) . It is dark ruby/purple to the rim, with notes of English walnuts, crushed rocks, black currants, and forest floor, dense, full-bodied, and opulent, yet classic with spectacular aromatics, marvelous purity, and a full-bodied finish that lasts just over 50+ seconds. Huge richness and the sweetness of the tannin are somewhat deceptive as this wine seems set for a long life. Administrator Frederic Engerer seems to be more pleased with what Latour achieved in 2002 than in any other recent vintage. Hats off to him for an extraordinary accomplishment in a vintage that wouldn’t have been expected to produce the raw materials to achieve something at this level of quality. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2045.
