    eRobertParker.com 95 Points!"The 2006 Latour performed even better from bottle than from barrel. Only 38% of the production (10,000 cases) made it into the grand vin, a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot and a small amount of...

    Gary Walsh 99 points!What goes in Latour, stays in Latour. What strikes you straight off, is its sense of completeness. There's no gaps or holes when you taste it; it just is. Here I am. Behold. And what presence it has. Dark fruit, slight peppery notes,...

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    eRobertParker.com 100 points!"A profound example of Chateau Latour, the full-bodied, opulent 2003 is already performing well at age eleven, which is somewhat atypical. The pH is a relatively high 3.8, which also indicates low acidity. The wine is very...

    "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,...

    Robert Parker 94 Points!"This is an interesting as well as great vintage for Latour. As indicated in my barrel tasting report, Latour's 1994 possesses an atypically high percentage of Merlot (27%) in the final blend. Because of this, the wine appears to...
