First Grand Cru Classé
Pauillac, Bordeaux, France
Peak : to drink
Robert Parker comments dating from 1998 :
“The Grand vin du Château Latour has a deep ruby color, and a surprisingly backward yet promising bouquet of black currants, spicy oak, and herbs. In the mouth, it is medium bodied, exhibits more power and tannin than many wines in this vintage, and finishes with surprising authority.”
