2009 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac
Almost as deep as the Grand Vin in the glass, Les Forts shares similar scented aromas. Revealing impressive intensity on the palate, there is abundant dark berry fruit, a little cedar and racy notes of graphite. An elegant style, with ample fruit locked into a taut frame. By no means a blockbuster, this possesses a classic sense of proportion and is slightly austere to the finish. Easily of second growth calibre, this is one of the best young Les Forts ever produced. Long and refined.
