Lot #213. Latour 1970

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"Tasted 13 Times With Consistent Notes. The 1970 Latour is made in a more robust, less silky style than more recent vintages, but there is no doubting its extraordinary concentration. The more I taste this wine, the more I am convinced that it, along with Petrus, are the finest wines of the vintage. Although it has taken on some amber, there is tremendous saturation and thickness to the deep ruby/garnet color. The nose offers a fragrant concoction of cedar, sweet red and black fruits, herbs, wood, and roasted nuts. In the mouth, this is a formidably concentrated, powerful wine that has shed much of its tannins, but is still extremely dense, massive, and rich. This great example of Latour is just beginning to reach full maturity . . ." Wine Advocate #95, Oct 1994
