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.

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.
The second wine of legendary Chateau Latour. About 70 % Cabernet, 30 % Merlot-- though the exact proportion of grape varieties will vary slightly from year to year. Aged 18 months in half new and half one-vintage barrels.
