Full medium ruby. Wonderfully sweet rich aromas of cassis minerals and bitter chocolate. A huge wine with almost painful intensity; solid as a rock and at the same time utterly sensual and creamy with great inner-mouth complexity and depth of flavor and a complete absence of rough edges. "Almost too easy today " says Engerer. Sweet notes of roasted nuts and chocolate add to the wine s early appeal. A powerful hugely rich Latour with a great building finish and perfectly suave tannins. This was really th

The 2000 Latour (a relatively abundant 14,000 cases compared to what they produced in 2009, 2008, or 2005) is packed and stacked. The extremely rich, black/purple color to the rim is followed by a wine with some subtle smoke, loads of minerals, a hint of vanilla, and plenty of creme de cassis as well as roasted meat and a slight scorched earth character. Broad, savory, and rich, the wine seems to be about 5 years away from full maturity and should drink well for at least 40-50 more years. A great effort, probably eclipsed only by 2003 and 2009.
