AOP - Appellation d’Origine Protégée (AOC)
1989 Château Latour 1er Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac AOC, Château Latour
Rich and round wine. Full-bodied, with very good fruit and long velvety tannins. Needs more time. Round and rich. An evolved dark ruby color reveals amber at the edge. The nose offers aromas of caramel, coffee, ripe black cherry and currant fruit, cedar, and spice box. Although medium-bodied, with low acidity.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
This wine was tasted at a vertical tasting held in Charlotte, North Carolina several days before the Christie tasting. The Latour staff spoke far more highly of the 1989 than my experience has shown.
