2008 Château Latour, 1er Cru Pauillac

Deep opaque in the glass, with pure aromas of black fruit, toast, graphite and cedar – already beautifully complex. The palate reveals a fine density; rich berry and cassis, with a marked gravelly minerality. This is a taut, linear style with naturally high tannin, making for a firm, precise and powerful Latour. Impressive in the vintage context. Not imposing, but forthright, with ample toasty, cedary, black fruit and an unerring minerality. Elegant and linear, with great purity and freshness, this vintage recalls the style associated with 2004 and 2006. Very fine. Robert Parker: 96-98
