Latour Montrachet 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

One of Bordeaux's most concentrated, rich and full-bodied wines. Latour is dark ruby in color and has a unique bouquet of fresh walnuts, leather, and black currants.

A classic bordeaux from what seems to be turning out to be a stellar year. We found it complex, and full flavored.

Deep garnet-black in color, the 1996 is classic Latour at its utmost. The nose offers a tantalizing array of complex notes including dried Chinese plums, toasted nuts, Indian spices and black olive tapenade over a core of dried cherries and aged meat...

Saturated ruby-red. Dark berries violet licorice and a note of torrefaction. Explosive pure flavors are almost too big for the mouth. Finishes with big sweet tannins and expanding exhilarating flavors of pruneaux and crystallized dark berries. Perfectly integrated oak. A great Latour. 95(+?) points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberries, plums and blackberries. Mind-blowing nose. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long caressing finish. Hard not to drink now, but leave it alone.--95/96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010. 17,0... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Latour, Chateau 750ml

Deep garnet-black in color the 1996 is classic Latour at its utmost. The nose offers a tantalizing array of complex notes including dried Chinese plums toasted nuts Indian spices and black olive tapenade over a core of dried cherries and aged meat. The palate is pure power that is stunningly balanced giving a generous level of fruit concentration perfectly offset by a high level of very finely grained tannins and seamless freshness. Possessing a finish that just goes on and on this is as good as it gets. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
