Description:

Chateau Latour 1966
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
u: one high shoulder, one low-mid shoulder, bin soil

"The wine of the vintage, the 1966 Latour is a classic, old style Bordeaux that has required decades to become drinkable. A dark, opaque garnet color is followed by a fabulous nose of cedar, sweet leather, black fruits, prunes, and roasted walnuts, refreshing underlying acidity, sweet but noticeable tannin, and a spicy finish. This powerful, vigorous, immensely impressive, concentrated Latour has reached its plateau of maturity, where it will remain for another 10-20 years." R. Parker, 96 pts. 06/00
2 bottles
