Grand Vin de Chateau Latour 1962 Premier Grand Cru Classe
A rare opportunity to acquire a bottle of Chateau Latour 1962.
This is part of a private customer’s collection which has been in the vendor's family since release. The wines have been stored at the family’s cellar which was refurbished in the 90's during that period this case of wine was placed on the earth floor which caused the tissue to adhere to the labels, which has led to the staining of the labels. These wines are in excellent condition with the levels all around and above top shoulder.
We are acting as an agent in the sale and the price is exclusive of V.A.T. which is not due.
Latour continues to be one of the great vintages for this chateau. A dense opaque garnet color reveals amber at the edge, as well as an incredible perfume of cedar wood, balsam, coffee, black fruits, leather, and cigar smoke. The wine is supple and full-bodied, with sweet tannin, glorious levels of fruit and extract, abundant glycerin, and a seductive, truffle-flavored finish. While it has been drinkable for two decades, it is capable of lasting another 20 years. It is a perfectly balanced, exciting Latour that remains undervalued as well as underrated.
