Chateau Les Forts de Latour - Pauillac FUTURES


Winemaker's Notes:

We had been a bit disappointed with the quality of the Second wines in 2006until we tasted this astonishingly good Forts de Latour. We scored this winebetter than the two Pichons, which were themselves two of the best SecondGrowths in 2006. This has outstanding balance and pedigree from the dense,dark, aromatic nose to the very long, pure finish. The wine reflects theelegance of 2006 with lifted, cool black fruit on the palate, a great structureand savoury tannins.
