    2010 Pauillac, Second Wine from Chateau Latour, Bordeaux

    The Forts de Latour is the Second Wine from Chateau Latour and was aged as carefully as the great wine. The difference between the two lies in the fact that Les Fort de Latour aged in 50% new barrels. This vintage 2010 is 72.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by 25.5% Merlot and Petit Verdot.

    This 2010 Pauillac reveals a beautiful deep colour. The rather complex nose is composed of red berries. The 2010 Les Forts de Latour is a pure, fine, aromatic and full-bodied wine. The rich and elegant tannins remain thick and long. This exceptional year foreshadows a strong ageing potential.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Les Forts de Latour seems just a little tired compared to the last time I tried it, offering a core of dried mulberries, fruitcake and Chinese five spice followed by scents of balsamic, woodsmoke and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate has chewy, rugged tannins and evolved black fruits, finishing spicy. While still very delicious, I think this bottle may have been a bit oxidized, ergo the question mark after the score.
