Extremely attractive aromas of blackberries and currants with just a hint of mineral and oak. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long long finish. As it was from barrel; powerful and fast. Serious stuff. Best after 2010. -JS Wine Spectator.

Deep red-ruby. Enticing aromas of roasted plum currant graphite and smoky oak. Precise spicy and juicy; more herbal than the 2002 or 2003 but also very intensely flavored and not at all hard. This very long pure Latour seems to be shutting down today. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Deep garnet colored the nose is open and expressive even at this youthful stage giving notes of black berry and black cherry compote potpourri and anise with hints of sandalwood and cloves. The palate is drinking beautifully now (though with loads more to give) offering a high level of ripe velvety tannins enlivening acid and just enough fruit concentration finishing long. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A brilliant offering...a glorious bouquet of black currants, crushed stones, vanilla, and hints of truffles and oak...reveals a sweetness on the palate that is atypical for such a young Latour. The beautiful integration of tannin, acidity, and wood i... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Latour, Chateau 3000ml
