Lot size: 1 bottle of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1985 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Bordeaux Blend

Almost as great as the 1982. Dense and luscious with amazingly deep plum, blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and full tannins. A wine with a terrific future. Try after 1998.--The Bordeaux 50. (JS) 95 points James Suckling, Wine Spectator

Fairly deep ruby. Vibrant blackberries, mixed red berries, cedar. This is a fresh vibrant Latour with great focus and weight. While the wine has very good depth and intensity, it falls short when compared to some of Latour's more powerful and expressive vintages. The flavours are balanced, gentle and delicate. This wine is just reaching its prime - enjoy soon or lay it down in your cellar for another few decades. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Maturity: Drink.
Tasted: 01-Mar-2011
