1982 Chateau Latour Premier Grand Cru Classe 75cl / 12.5%
A bottle of 1982 Grand Vin de Château Latour from Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation from one of the most lauded vintages of the 20th Century. This has received 100 point scores from critics Robert Parker, Neal Martin and Decanter's Jane Anson.
'The 1982 Latour was dense, ruby/purple with incredible opulence and sweetness of fruit, beautifully ripe tannin, and a long, layered finish that went well past a minute. 1982 is a legend and a more modern-day version of the 1961. 100 points' Robert Parker, Hedonist's Gazette, February 2016
