Tasting Notes

"A blend of 84.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the 2011 Latour represents only 34% of the crop. It hit 13.1% natural alcohol. One of the vintage's most compelling wines, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet, open-knit personality with ripe tannin, superb intensity, good purity and harmony, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and lots of crushed rock, floral and black as well as blue fruit notes in addition to hints of ink and forest floor. This beautifully rich, savory Latour will be surprisingly drinkable in 4-5 years, and should age easily for two decades or more.

By the way, Latour harvested relatively late for the Medoc, beginning the harvest on September 12 and finishing on September 26." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate (4/25/2012, Issue 200), Ratings: 93-95, Drink: 2016-2036
