Les Forts de Latour Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Les Forts de Latour has a very fragrant floral bouquet with lifted blackberry raspberry cheesecake vanilla and graphite on the nose. The palate is full-bodied with succulent ripe black fruit on the entry. It is fleshier than its peers with very good weight and a smooth rounded velvety finish that is seeking a little more precision and tension. Tasted January 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

This has purity and precision with mouthwatering blackberry black currant and steeped plum fruit racing along nicely laced with graphite and studded with enticing ganache and iron notes through the finish. Sleek but the grip is there. Best from 2014 through 2028. -JM Wine Spectator.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. A quite impressive and serious second wine.' Exceptionally complex both aromatically and on the palate, I was pleasantly surprised by how spicy this wine was. I get notes of... John Sweeney. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Forts de Latour, Les 750ml

65% Cabernet Sauvignon 32% Merlot 1% Cabernet Franc 2% Petit Verdot. A quite impressive and serious `second wine. Exceptionally complex both aromatically and on the palate I was pleasantly surprised by how spicy this wine was. I get notes of both red and black fruits black pepper and lead pencil. The tannins are very integrated so this wine is very silky and has a long finish. John Sweeney.
