CHATEAU LATOUR 1961
Château Latour 1961
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé
u. 1hs, 1h/m, soiled and worn labels, 1 slightly nicked top left, slightly corroded and worn short capsules

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 had 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. In 2012, more of the same! Serena Sutcliffe, MW
