    Chateau Latour 1970
    Pauillac
    3bn, 3ts, 1hs, 1lbsl, good color
    Bottle (8)
    "...notes of soy, cedar, roasted vegetables, leather, and earth dominating the wine's fruit. Tasty, elegant, medium-bodied, and fully mature, the 1970 is excellent..." (89pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #129, June 2000)

    "…Deep garnet in colour, nice limpidity in the glass. It has a beautiful nose that to be honest, sweeps aside the respectable Domaine de Chevalier ’70 poured alongside, like a lord dismissing his servant with a swish of his hand. Graphite, wild black fruit, freshly rolled tobacco and a faint hint of truffle. The palate is medium-bodied and after forty years, still quite austere but the balance is nailed. Masculine and foursquare, a Latour with a lot of horsepower… Lovely cedar and mint on the long, long finish. Wonderful…” (96 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Journal #1110, Nov. 2010)
