Description

Château Latour 1982
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé
u. vts, original tissue, bin-soiled label, slightly scuffed capsule, excellent color and clarity

Always somewhat atypical... the 1982 Latour has been the most opulent, flamboyant, and precocious of the northern Medocs... revealing sweet tannins as well as extraordinarily decadent, even extravagant levels of fruit, glycerin, and body... on several occasions, I have actually picked it as a right bank Pomerol because of the lushness and succulence of the cedary, blackberry, black currant fruit...The concentration remains remarkable, and the wine is a full-bodied, exuberant, rich, classic Pauillac in its aromatic and flavor profiles. It's just juiced up... and is all the better for it. This remarkable effort will last as long as the 1982 Mouton, but it has always been more approachable and decadently fruity. WA 100 - 06/09
