The 2009 Chateau Latour carries strength and high concentration of really ripe tannins. These traits are often found in wines offering intense aromas and great freshness. Rich, ripe, mineral, ending on a long finish; Latour’s 2009 vintage will open up generously after a few years in the cellar.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby--this needs time!
