Available for:
Dense, full-bodied, very tannic. The fruit reminds us of the 1988 yet riper; as for the structure, it is quite like the 1986 yet less austere. Long on the palate, these wines develop strong aromas of licorice and black cherry. Very classic, the Grand Vin of Latour is the typical expression of the power of the terroir of the "Enclos" parcel.

Red-ruby. Deep aromas of cassis, licorice and lead pencil. Deeper than Les Forts but currently rather mute in the middle. Strongly minerally. Offers classic Latour structure and spine. Finishes with sneaky, subtle persistence. ST

Plenty of currant, raspberry and mineral aromas, with hints of leaf and wet earth. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a tar, berry and cherry aftertaste. Slightly rustic for Latour. Not as exciting as I remember from barrel. Best after 2008. 19,165 cases made.
