Château Latour 1961

Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé

 

u. 4bn, 1vts, sligtly soiled labels, "ESTABLISHMENTS NICOLAS" stamp on labels, slightly corroded 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

WA 100

 

每個人心目中的傳奇佳釀,直至今天,此酒依然活力充盈,絲毫不減其多姿多采多的複雜性。滲入心脾的馥郁香氣,煥發出美妙的糖漿味道;相互交迭的層次感,還有源源不絕的果香和丹寧。她將踏入50個年頭時品嚐,帶一股極度濃郁的黑加侖子「拉圖」式芳香。果味洋溢,加上拉圖特別濃稠的1961年質感,豐厚的口感把丹寧掩蓋,充滿張力的勁道,奇脆無比的果味,兩小時後享用,更加精彩。2012年品嚐,此感覺更甚!施慧娜 (葡萄酒大師 M.W.)
