Description:

*Chateau Latour 1955
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
u. labels missing in vertical striping, some vintages missing

"A spectacular Latour, from a vintage that has provided many superb surprises (especially in the Medoc and Graves), the deep garnet-colored 1955 reveals some amber at the edge. It remains tannic, but its extraordinary perfume of smoked meats, dried herbs, cedar, black fruits, underbrush, and leather is seductive. It is full-bodied, with a sweet, intense mid-palate, plenty of power, and decades of life remaining. This is an under-rated, stunning Latour that may even improve. Anticipated maturity: now-2020." R, Parker, 94 pts. 06/02
6 bottles
Estimate $2,400-3,400
