Chateau Latour 1970 Premier Grand Cru Classe - Pauillac 75cl / 12.5%
A bottle of 1970 Grand Vin de Château Latour from Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation.
Château Latour is rated as a First Growth under the 1855 Bordeaux Classification.
'One of the top 2 or 3 wines of the vintage....this young, magnificent Latour is still 5-10 years away from full maturity. The opaque garnet color is followed by a huge, emerging nose of black fruits, truffles, walnuts, and subtle tobacco/Graves-like scents. Full bodied, fabulously concentrated, and intense, with a sweet inner core of fruit and high but well- integrated tannin, this enormously endowed , massive Latour should hit its prime by the end of the century and last for three or four decades thereafter. This will be the most longest-lived and potentially most classic wine of the vintage.' 98 points. Robert Parker, 1998
