94% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Merlot; 40% of the vintage was selected for the Grand Vin. On the nose very perfumed with notes of graphite flowers and black fruits. This wine smelled like pure hedonistic cabernet on the palate there were notes of casis coffee and slightly toasted oak. The wine was very chewy very complex and totally complete in the mouth. John Sweeney.

Damn me for saying it, but I actually think the 2008 Latour will turn out to be even better than the 2005 or 2000. I still have a weakness for the 2003, but it is somewhat atypical in how forward, fleshy, and opulent it is. The 2008 Latour is a more ... Robert Parker.

Saturated ruby-red. Subdued but wonderfully pure nose hints at black cherry graphite tobacco licorice black olive and crushed stone. Lush sweet and deep with terrific energy and early sex appeal to the dark berry spice and vanilla flavors. The sweetness builds on the very long aftertaste where the solid tannins are in perfect harmony with the wine s fruit. Leaves a black cherry perfume in the retronasal passage. Likely to be one of the vintage s longest-lived examples. 94+ Stephen T

This is dense and muscular but balanced with the flesh to offset the sinew as pure mulled black currant melted fig and crushed plum fruit is caressed by substantial but fine-grained structure. The long iron- and tobacco-filled finish has excellent focus and drive. This could rival LLC for longest-lived wine of the vintage. Best from 2013 through 2022. -JM Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

Latour's superb single village Macon is one of the most exciting $20 white Burgundies we have ever offered. Gorgeous apple/pear/vanilla scents lead to intense Chardonnay flavors backed up with refreshing, bright acidity.
