Lot #29. Latour 1964

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 JG.
"The ’64 Latour is the finest wine made in the Médoc in this vintage, as the grapes were all picked before the rains arrived in October. It has been a few years since I last drank the ’64 Latour, but this is a vintage that I have found immensely satisfying and drinking brilliantly since at least the late 1980s, and the wine shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The bouquet is one of the most floral expressions of Latour that I have ever encountered, as the wine offers up notes of sweet cassis, tobacco, cigar ash, a gentle touch of Latour walnut, a lovely base of soil and a pungent topnote of violet that almost recalls a top old vintage of Château Margaux. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and deep, though not the most powerful vintage of Latour from this era, with beautifully focus and balance, modest tannins, a lovely, almost silky palate impression, and lovely length and grip on the very complex and refined finish."
