    A Pauillac red wine with tannins of great class

    A 1st Growth Classified in 1855, Chateau Latour is a red wine produced in the Pauillac appellation. The vines benefit from a terroir that is very characteristic of the appellation. The harvest of the 1989 vintage was the earliest since that of 1893. The climate was ideal, with bud burst occurring on March 27th for the Merlot, flowering on May 29th and a beautifully dry summer that accelerated the ripening of the grapes. The blend of the 1989 vintage consists of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

    At tasting, the Chateau Latour 1989 reveals a dark red color, intense and evolved. The bouquet offers aromas of great complexity, combining fruits, cedar and a subtle animal touch. The attack on the palate is aromatic, then the wine becomes ample, fat and fruity. The presence of tannins is noticeable but they are not aggressive in the least, offering instead a great finesse.

    The organoleptic qualities described here are only valid for the year in which this wine was tasted. Naturally, the wine is subject to evolution in the bottle throughout its life, which changes certain characteristics described in this commentary.

    Parker : 89 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    This wine was tasted at a vertical tasting held in Charlotte, North Carolina several days before the Christie tasting. The Latour staff spoke far more highly of the 1989 than my experience has shown.
