Description:

Chateau Latour 1962
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
u: one high shoulder, two high mid shoulder, corrosion and oxidation to capsules, staining to labels (two lightly, one heavily)
"Latour continues to be one of the great vintages for this chateau. A dense opaque garnet color reveals amber at the edge, as well as an incredible perfume of cedar wood, balsam, coffee, black fruits, leather, and cigar smoke. The wine is supple and full-bodied, with sweet tannin, glorious levels of fruit and extract, abundant glycerin, and a seductive, truffle-flavored finish. While it has been drinkable for two decades, it is capable of lasting another 20 years. It is a perfectly balanced, exciting Latour that remains undervalued as well as underrated." R. Parker for TWA, 95 pts. 06/00
3 bottles
Estimate $1,800-2,400
