1999 Chateau Latour Pauillac Bordeaux - 94 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 94 RP - 1999 Chateau Latour Pauillac Bordeaux - 94 pts! Readers looking for a modern day version of Latour's magnificent 1962 or 1971 should check out the sensational 1999 Latour. It is a big concentrated offering exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color and a classic nose of minerals black currants leather and vanilla. The wine is long ripe and medium-bodied with high levels of sweet tannin. This surprisingly full concentrated 1999 should be drinkable in 5-6 years it will last for three decades.
