1979 Latour

flagBordeaux / France

A beautiful plummy, aniseed infuse nose. Not powerful, but great balance with prunes, dried leaves and aniseed on palate. A little austere but drinking well now. Better than 1978. Intriguing. A second bottle in December 2004. Again that odd aniseed nose that is so distinct. High-toned, almost New Worldy. But it lacks complexity. The palate is fleshy with notes of redcurrant of coffee. Unlike the first time I tasted this, I find this wine a bit false, bit of a "Frankenstein" Latour. Quite bretty on the finish. Drink up. Jan 2000, www.robertparker.com
