1961 Chateau Latour Pauillac Bordeaux - OWC - 100 Pts!

Château Latour is one of Bordeaux's – and the world's – most famous wine producers. It is situated in the southeast corner of the Pauillac commune on the border of Saint-Julien, in the Médoc region. Rated as a First Growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, it has become one of the most sought-after and expensive wine producers on the planet, and produces powerfully structured Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wines capable of lasting many decades.

The site has been occupied since 1331, with a fort and garrison to guard the estuary. Several smallholdings began to grow vines, and wine from the site gained recognition from Montaigne as early as the 16th Century. The original tower no longer exists; the famous tower featured on the label was designed as a pigeon roost and built around 1620.

Rating RP100 - Port-like with an unctuous texture and a dark garnet color with considerable amber at the edge the 1961 Latour possesses a viscosity and thickness. One of the three bottles served at the Chateau's tasting revealed a surprisingly aggressive minty herbaceous nose but the other two bottles were liquid perfection exhibiting fragrant cedary truffle leather mineral and sweet jammy aromatics full-bodied voluptuous textures exquisite purity and concentration and a layered highly-nuanced finish that represents the essence of compellingly great wine. The 1961 has been fully mature for over 15 years but it seems to get richer holding onto its succulence and fat and developing more aromatic nuances without losing any sweetness or concentration. An extraordinary wine it is unquestionably one of the Bordeaux legends of the century! RP
