Chateau Latour 2008

Located at the heart of the Medoc region, a large portion of Chateau Latour vineyard lies on gravel ridges. The great 2008 Chateau Latour falls within a range the Chateau’s high quality vintages. The pure yet neat wine is harsh, rich, and tight. Surprisingly well balanced, 2008 Chateau Latour shows great ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 0.75% Cabernet Franc and 0.25% Petit Verdot, the 2008 Latour gives a medium to deep garnet color and slips sensuously out of the glass with Chinese five spice, unsmoked cigars, sandalwood and dried roses scents over a core of warm cassis, Black Forest cake, chocolate mint and smoked meats plus a waft of black olives and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is well-sustained in the middle with generous black fruits and lovely red fruit sparks, layered with savory nuances and a firm, grainy backbone, finishing with bags of perfume and freshness.
