Description

A bottle of Grand Vin de Château Latour from Pauillac from the massively tannic 1928 vintage.

'...it was, and still is, the star of the vintage. Like the 1870 Lafite, so dense, powerful and bitterly tannic that it was a full half-century before it was mellow enough to be enjoyed.' Michael Broadbent MW, who awarded both vintage and wine a maximum 5 stars. American critic Robert Parker awarded it a perfect 100 point score.

The owner describes the provenance of this wine thus: ' this came into my possession in 1992 when I acquired a business and it was in their cellar which was cool and damp and had been there for at least 20 years. My cellar is also cool and relatively damp and that is where it has been since'

This Chateau Latour 1928 sold at our online auction for £750
