Chateau Latour 1982 Premier Grand Cru Classe - Pauillac 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.
Château Latour is rated as a First Growth under the 1855 Bordeaux Classification and is generally considered to be the most powerful of them all in terms of longevity and depth of flavour. The core of the fruit comes from the 45 hectare L'Enclos vineyard, which is located next to the Château and winery. Plantings are 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
'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
