1961 Chateau Latour Pauillac Bordeaux - OWC - 100 Pts!
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
