Description:

Chateau Latour 1966
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
u: high shoulder, small losses to capsule top, light marking to label
"The 1966 Latour remains an exemplar of the vintage, certainly one of the best, if not the best Left Bank wine of the vintage. Here, served blind, its quality was a beacon, quintessentially Pauillac with that trademark graphite seam through the intense black fruit, cold stone and a touch of tobacco. It remains undimmed by its age (though this was served from a magnum of impeccable provenance). The palate is medium-bodied and that graphite theme continues unabated, flanked by beautiful, precise and pure vestiges of black fruit. "Pure class" are the final two words of my tasting note and at 50 years old, they sum up this immensely impressive Ch√Ęteau Latour." N. Martin for TWA, 96 pts. 10/16
1 bottle
Estimate $500-800
