Tasting Notes

Very fine, but it lacks the ebulliance of the 1995. (90-92) Then a superb showing when tasted blind against the other First Growths in September 2006. A superb, ravishing nose. Blackberry, chestnut, cooked meats. Very intense and with great delineation. The palate is full-bodied, tannic, solid and muscular. Latour? Very well-balanced, has a certainly meaty core to it. Good grip but not over-powering. Huge grip on the finish. Very fine. Neal Martin
