2004 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac
Tasted blind, one would believe 2004 Les Forts to be a cru classé of a high level. Gorgeous seductive, pure fruit on the nose is an entrée to a palate that is alive with flavours of fresh blackcurrant, Victoria plum and blueberry supported by savoury spices. There is a depth that one often gains from old vines and balanced yields, which creates a sensation of a well-knit wine, with layered fruit. The texture is both silky and vibrant. Les Forts contains a higher percentage of Merlot than the grand vin and the result is a pauillac with a sumptuous, luscious character. Terrific Les Forts.
