A friend ask me once if he should purchase some of the Latour 1998. My first answer was no, but after the seller gave him an extra discount on the wine, he thought at this price, there's no harm. So, last night, he kindly brought a bottle for us to try and even though this was not the finest Latour ever made, I have once again realise, that with good company and good food, the first great growths are always (no matter the vintage) simply great wines. The nose was slightly closed at first, developing aromas of blackcurrant, tar, dark chocolate and coffee. The structure is fairly light and silky with tannins still a little dry, but well integrated. Alcohol levels are not overwhelming, but balanced with some acidity on the mid palate. More flavors of blackcurrant, dark cherries and coffee bean. The length is short and probably the major disapointment on this wine, missing the impressive finish of Latour from greater vintages. A wine to enjoy now and for another 3 to 4 years. QC

Medium red-ruby. Superripe, almost surmuri aromas of cherry, raspberry, minerals and meat. Big, very rich and expansive; lovely firm-edged acids give the wine surprising vinosity and insinuating flavor. Impeccably balanced. The tannins are thoroughly... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1998 Latour a Pomerol 750ml
