Description

Chateau Latour, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2001

Grapes: A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, gravel soil, 60 year old vines, aged in French oak barrels

Chateau Tasting Note:

Classic, distinguished, and dominated by a balance of great purity, the 2001 will have to be matured and aged to develop its full potential. It will maintain a solid place in the succession of great vintages of recent years. Very good year.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Very deep garnet in colour. The bouquet is a little tighter than a couple of years ago, a little broody even, with blackberry, black olive and a touch of blueberry and despite coaxing it stays in its shell, ordering you to come back later (like in five years time.) The palate is lithe and feminine, certainly more expressive than the bouquet, full-bodied, brilliant defined with notes of cedar, graphite, blackberry and graphite. Conversely to the nose, the finish is more open, with firm tannins, great structure and a sense of razor-sharp focus. This is an enticing proposition, but it needs another few years cellaring." Drink 2013-2030+

96/100 points, Neal Martin, Wine Journal, November 2009

"From magnum. Very concentrated. Very convincing. Solid lead-pencil character yet refined too. Long-term stuff with a notably dry finish. Mineral, dense and layered. Fabulously nuanced and persistent."

19/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com., March 2012
