Latour 2013 1.5 Liter Magnum
Pauillac is probably the most famous village in Bordeaux. Located between St. Julien and St. Estephe, it has more of the top-ranked chateau than the other four appellations of the Haut Medoc. This area has three of the five premier cru classe wineries: Lafite Rothschild, Latour, and Mouton Rothschild. There are two of the top second-growths (Pichon Lalande and Pichon Baron) as well as several outstanding fourth and fifth-growth chateaux including Lynch Bages. Because of the grave soils and great drainage, Pauillac has the ideal conditions to grow great Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines from this village are some of the longest-lived in Bordeaux.

This is really racy with ultra-fine tannins. Pretty mint, currants, blackberries, and fresh. Full body, with firm tannins and a long and intense finish. Finesse and textured. Tannic backbone.
Dark red cherries, plums, smoke and new leather flesh out in the 2013 Latour. This is a relatively easygoing Latour with the good overall depth and fine balance if not the thrill of the very best years, something that would have been impossible. At the same time though, the Latour is one of the bigger wines of the vintage. Violets, rose petals and dark spices flesh out the resonant finish. There is plenty to look forward to here. The blend is 95.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.3% Merlot and 0.4% Petit Verdot.

Tight and primal, with a taut plum pit and iron frame around a core of red currant, cherry and raspberry fruit. Flecks of white pepper line the finish, which features a long iron spine that shows an impressive cut. Comes up short on flesh, but the precision is there, offering echoes of pomegranate, blood orange and bitter cherry allied to the minerality. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Tasted non-blind.
