1996 Chateau Latour Pauillac - 99 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 RP99 - 1996 Chateau Latour Pauillac Bordeaux - 99 Pts! A spectacular Latour the 1996 may be the modern day clone of the 1966 only riper. This vintage which is so variable in Pomerol St.-Emilion and Graves was fabulous for the late-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon of the northern Medoc because of splendid weather in late September and early October. An opaque purple color is followed by phenomenally sweet pure aromas of cassis infused with subtle minerals. This massive offering possesses unreal levels of extract full body intensely ripe but abundant tannin and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. Classic and dense it displays the potential for 50-75 years of longevity. Although still an infant it would be educational to taste a bottle. RP
