External Reviews for Les Forts de Latour Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
Medium ruby. Aromas of crystallized cassis, licorice, graphite and mint. Dense but backward, and thus not showing its flesh today. But offers lovely sweetness, and subtle floral and licorice nuances. Slow-building, long finish features ripe, even tan... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Forts de Latour, Les 750ml
The 2000 Les Forts de Latour is a seriously endowed wine with notes of black walnuts, black currants, crushed rock, tobacco and spice box. Full-bodied, luscious but still in need of another 2-3 years to hit full maturity, it certainly can evolve for another 15 or more years, and looks to be slightly richer and longer-lived than I originally predicted.
( 65- 95) Very good red-ruby. Exotic aromas of roasted red berries and spices. Sweet lush broad and impressively ripe. Flavors of black cherry licorice and shoe polish are at once classic Pauillac and compellingly exuberant. Complicated by a lovely floral element. Finishes very long bright and sweet. A superb vintage for this wine. 91 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
