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.

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. 17 000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.

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.
