2006 Ch. Latour, Pauillac

Sold Out

Ch. Latour 2006 is the wine of the vintage. The pure, dark chocolate and cassis nose is followed by a palate of enormous intensity with lashings of cool blackberries and cream, minerals, cedar and coffee. The length of the finish is astonishing too - as if the wine is still in your mouth. Engerer says he did not aim for power in 2006 but a classical richness and lively minerality - the result is similar in style to the 'intellectual' 2005 'at the crossroads of elegance and refinement and power and richness'. He's right; it's very nearly as good too.
