In everyone's list of mythical wines, but still very much present in its enormous vigour, dimension and complexity. The rich, pervasively scented bouquet leads to a great, treacly taste, with overlapping layers, plus fruit and tannin in massive doses. Just before its 50th birthday, it has that immediate, ultra-concentrated, total cassis, burly Latour nose. Utterly nostalgic and reminiscent of time and place. A huge gulp of intoxicating fruit and aromatics, with that inimitable thick texture of 1961 in general and Latour in particular. So much fat, it covers the tannin. Total tensile strength. It literally is "crunchy" with berries. After two hours in the glass, it is even more stupendous. SS.

A small crop that made wines of unparalleled character and intensity. Just putting one's nose in a glass of 1961 sets the scene - the profound persistence of the bouquet could be no other vintage. This is an extraordinary selection of the most fabulous wines made in this historic year. SS.
