2010 Chateau Latour, Potentially Perfect Bordeaux Wine!



2010 Chateau Latour 2010 Bordeaux Wine review, tasting notes and ratings.

2010 Latour    This special wine was crafted from only 36% of the harvest. Using 90.5 Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot , the wine reached 14.4% alcohol.  In the glass, this inky, black colored wine is filled with truffle, cassis, chocolate fudge, leather, spice and Cuban cigar aromas. Combining delicacy, power, richness and elegance, which is always difficult to come by, the palate is washed over by waves of intense pure cassis and spicy black plums that fill your mouth and coat your palate. With ripe tannins, purity of fruit and freshness, this is so rich, concentrated and creamy, you can eat it with a spoon. Seamless, balanced and harmonious, the finish lasts for over one minute.  The essence of Pauillac, this is pure liquid intensity. 98-100 Pts

2010 Les Forts de Latour is produced from 72.5 Cabernet Sauvignon, 25.5 Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, this deeply colored, earth, oak, cassis and tobacco scented wine offers fresh cassis and chocolate flavors.  90-93 Pts

2010 Pauillac – Produced from 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44.5 Merlot and a dollop of Cabernet Franc is an uncommonly rich third wine with cassis, tobacco, coca and dark cherry sensations. 89-91  Pts
