Château Latour

Description

2000 Château Latour 1er Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac AOC, Château Latour
 
Dark crimson. Light, bracing nose. Not the most intense Latour vintage but it is at least more Latour than 2000. Very solid and mineral with some lift and I should think no disappointment in the long run, though I would strongly recommend the more expressive Forts in the short term. The grand vin is obdurately dry and introvert at the moment.

Vinous:
The 2000 Latour is a wine that I feel is overlooked by many cognoscenti, goggle-eyed by the 2005 or 2009. However, this is perhaps the pinnacle of the millennial vintage. It has a stunning bouquet with extraordinarily pure blackberry, raspberry, cedar and violets. The oak is seamlessly integrated. The palate has a satin-like texture thanks to the filigree tannin, almost Burgundy-like in texture though Pinot Noir rarely achieves this density or arching structure. It is extremely complex, the black fruit giving way to more red fruit with aeration, gradually mellowing, even if it would benefit from another four or five years in bottle.
This is a majestic Latour. Drink 2018-2060.
