User Reviews for Chateau Latour Pauillac Premier

Winemaker's Notes:

"...off the charts concentration in addition to the highest level of tannin ever measured at the estate...Possibly a 100-year wine, it boasts an inky/black/purple color as well as an extraordinary perfume of super-intense blue and black fruits, graphite, and a liqueur of rocks-like minerality. Enormously full-bodied yet at the same time incredibly fresh, vibrant, and precise, it coats the mouth, and builds incrementally to skyscraper-like texture, and a whopping finish that lasts over a minute. This remarkable wine reveals a certain accessibility already, yet one senses that it will be even richer, more nuanced, and fuller by the time it is bottled in mid-2011. A monumental wine from a monumental vintage in the Medoc, this is our children's children's children's elixir...98-100" WA 04/10 "This reminds me of twins that have a very different character. One is very flamboyant with ripe and wild fruit, and a dense and powerful finish. The other is reserved and serious, with an intense tannin structure. Combined they are a complex whole that is mind bending. Great complexity. I would like to spend hours contemplating this. Barrel sample. 98+" JamesSuckling.com 1/11
