1990 Chateau Latour Pauillac Bordeaux - Wine of theYear - 100 Pts!
This is one of my favorite wines ever. Full-bodied with layers of silky fruit and masses of currant mineral and berry character. Amazing. It's a wine with perfect structure perfect strength. It's 1961 Latour in modern clothes. It's hard not to drink it now. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Best after 2008. WSThis is a beauty but not the awesome blockbuster I remembered. There is a roasted earthy hot year character with extremely low acidity fleshy seductive opulently-textured flavors and a full-bodied finish with considerable amounts of glycerin and tannin. The wine was sweet accessible and seductive on the attack but it closed down in the mouth. Interestingly when I previously tasted this wine (about six months ago) from a bottle in my cellar I found it to be impenetrable needing at least 6-10 years of further cellaring. Based on this example from the Chateau's cellar it could be drunk now. In any event it will last 25-30 years but is it the immortal classic many observers including myself thought it was? RP
