2009 Château Latour, 1er Cru Pauillac

2009 Château Latour, 1er Cru Pauillac

Suitably inky, opaque and bright in the glass. Restrained on the nose, with gently violet-scented ripe berry fruit. Abundant, wonderfully ripe dark berries on the palate, which is tightly packed with fruit within a muscular frame. A very assertive style, yet with sublime refinement to the sweet tannins. There is a stunning minerality here, grippy almost, with notes of graphite lending complexity to racy, Cabernet-dominated fruit. Long and pure, this is an imposing yet restrained Latour, with a dry, savoury finish. An undeniably great Latour with impeccable balance and poise.

Robert Parker: 98-100 points (Wine Advocate 188)
