Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(RP=100) Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries, and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles, and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated, and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super-ripe, grainy tannins, and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby - this needs time!

(JS=100) Dark and chocolatey with a lot of richness, but also a cool herbal freshness this is a very impressive Medoc wine that's already delicious to drink. Very long, surprisingly supple finish for this chateau. A perfect wine. Drink or hold. (Horizontal Tasting, London, 2019).

(WS=99) This seems to come full circle, with a blazing iron note and mouthwatering acidity upfront leading to intense, vibrant cassis, blackberry, and cherry skin flavors that course along, followed by the same vivacious minerality that started things off. The tobacco, ganache, and espresso notes seem almost superfluous right now, but they'll join the fray in due time. The question is, can you wait long enough? Best from 2020 through 2040. 9,580 cases made.

(AG=99) The 2009 Latour is endowed with a simply magnificent nose with intense blackberry and cassis fruit laced with minerals and graphite, extremely focused to the point of overwhelming the sense. Wow. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, multilayered black fruit infused with crushed stone, and a hint of white pepper, though it clams up towards the finish as if to say, not yet. Outstanding. This is Latour firing on all cylinders. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting.
