2007 Latour


93Average Score
flagBordeaux / France

Quite soft, but dark, almost purple core. Expressive and attractive nose – dark blackcurrant, fresh raspberry, plum, wax, graphite and a slight floral character. Some mineral and hints of earth evident after a decade in bottle. Elegant Pauillac. Layered and quite dense, but the whole profile of the wine is less ripe and concentrated than other recent counterparts (05, 08, 09…). Cedar, plums, cassis, liquorice, pencil lead, sweet spice, black pepper and mint notes add depth and complexity. Not the usual power or authoritative structure Latour normally possesses, particularly in youth, but a slightly softer, finer and more medium bodied example. Drinking wonderfully, this is definitely a vintage to have in the cellar and to approach whilst you wait for 2000s. A wine characterised by excellent freshness and delicacy, which puts it up there with the very best from 2007. Sep 2016
