Château Latour ist ein legendäres Weingut in Pauillac, das zu den grössten Weinen der Welt zählt. Raffinesse und Tiefe haben den Ruhm dieses grossen Rotwein begründet, der problemlos ein halbes Jahrhundert lang im Keller gelagert werden kann. Die Assemblage wird von Cabernet Sauvignon dominiert (oft um die 90%) und von Merlot, Cabernet Franc und Petit Verdot ergänzt. Der Ausbau findet in neuen Fässern statt.

The 2012 Latour is a blend of 90.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.6% Merlot and 0.2% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet colored, the nose slowly, measuredly emerges with notions of preserved Morello cherries, baked blackcurrants and blackberry compote, giving way to nuances of pencil shavings, unsmoked cigars, Chinese five spice and sandalwood plus ever so subtle hints of cardamom and eucalyptus. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black and red fruit preserves with a firm, grainy-textured frame and fantastic freshness, finishing with a veritable firework display of lingering spices and minerals. This is a more restrained, relatively elegant vintage of Latour that may not have that “iron fist in a velvet glove” power of the greatest vintages but nonetheless struts its superior terroir and behind-the-scenes savoir faire with impressive panache. It is drinking nicely now with suitably rounded-off, approachable tannins, and the tertiary characters are just beginning to bring some more cerebral elements into the compote of temptingly primary black fruits. But, if you’re looking to drink it in full, flamboyant swing, give it another 5-10 years in bottle and drink it over the next 20-25 years+. LP 03/2020
