Château-Latour Pauillac 1999


SKU 03472


It is a vintage of character. Dark, complex, well-balanced with a good concentration , and lots of ripe fruits. In our first tastings the wine shows aromas of very ripe dark cherry, wild strawberry, black currant, and prune. Velvety tannins, with long and powerful aromas, dense structure, very fresh.

Wine Advocate"Readers looking for a modern day version of Latour's magnificent 1962 or 1971 should check out the sensational 1999 Latour. It is a big, concentrated offering, exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color, and a classic nose of minerals, black currants, leather, and vanilla. The wine is long, ripe, and medium-bodied, with high levels of sweet tannin. This surprisingly full, concentrated 1999 should be drinkable in 5-6 years; it will last for three decades."
