    Chateau Latour 1959
    Pauillac
    1ts, 1hs, 1htms, 3lsbl
    Bottle (3)
    "Dark garnet with an amber edge, the 1959 Latour reveals a touch of volatile acidity in the nose, along with aromas of melted caramel, tobacco, and jammy red and black fruits. As the wine sat in the glass, notes of minerals, coffee, spice, and underbrush emerged. There is still copious tannin in the finish (I am not sure it will ever be fully resolved), but this sumptuous, complex, fragrant, super-rich Latour cuts a broad swath across the palate." (96pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #129, June 2000)

    "The 1959 Latour has always been one of my favorite vintages. Deep in color surprisingly little ageing on the rim, it has an opulent, for this First Growth possibly “decadent” bouquet with layers of black fruit infused with cedar and mint, a touch of grey ash emerging with aeration. The palate is sweet and comely on the entry, the powerful mixture of red and black fruit underpinned by a superb line of acidity, sensual and inviting with veins of blood orange towards the extraordinarily persistent finish. Just a magnificent wine." (98 pts. Neal Martin, Vinous, Nov. 2019)
