Les Forts de Latour Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Extremely ripe and rich, it reminds me of the 1982 on steroids...Sensational notes of graphite, crushed rocks, black fruits, camphor and damp forest notes are present in this expansive, savory, full-throttle wine, which is better than many vintages of the great Latour itself from the past...97." WA 2/13.

72.5% cabernet sauvignon 25.5% merlot 2% petit verdot. This wine represents 40% of the harvest in 2010 which began on September 20th with the merlot and finished on October 11th with the cabernet sauvignon. Alcohol is 14.3%. A nose of bright red fruits leads into flavors of grilled steak chocolate raspberry and an intense mineral streak. The finish is long with tremendous texture and weight on the palate. Tannins are beautifully integrated. Though this is Latour s second wine most wineries would be thrilled if this was their first wine! A real stunner and their best ever. Drink 2020-2030.

This comes off as almost sweet, thanks to gentle ripeness and friendly plum sauce, raspberry and cherry compote notes, all backed by an energy that's in reserve. There's latent acidity rippling through the finish, where briar, pastis and graphite lur... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Forts de Latour, Les 750ml

Deep red. Sweet red cherry cassis cedar and graphite on the showy nose. Sweet and chewy in the mouth with red fruit liqueur and Oriental spice elements carrying through on the tactile long finish. Much better than the Pauillac which is the estate s third wine. (ID) Stephen Tanzers IWC.
