Tasting Notes

1995 - A black colour with very little fade despite its 11 years of age and thick "legs" that cling stubbornly to the sides of the glass. A really fabulous nose of cassis, vanilla and leather. Huge and powerful on the palate with bags of concentrated Cabernet fruit that is dense and black yet impressively ripe and sweet. Still several years away from maturity, this a dense, impressive Latour that is brooding and powerful with a near perfect balance of fruit and tannins. A long distance runner that I am sure will out-live the 1990. (Although worth mentioning that this wine is currently far cheaper than the 1990 or 1996) 18

Score: 18Stephen Browett, December 2006

A beauty, the opaque, dense-purple coloured 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanilla, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe,40 second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour.As the wine sat in the glass, scents of roasted expresso and toasty new oak emerged.This classic will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity 2012-2050

A beauty, the opaque dense purple-colored 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanillin, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour. As the wine sat in the glass, scents of roasted espresso and toasty new oak emerged. This classic will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050.

Score: 96Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (129), June 2000

I have been blown away by this wine on recent occasions, and all of my hopes for it being a prodigious example of Latour after bottling have proven to be correct. The wine is a more unctuously-textured, sweeter, more accessible Latour than the 1996. What a fabulous, profound wine this has turned out to be. It is unquestionably one of the great wines of the vintage, and will probably need 10-12 years of cellaring before it can be approached. The wine reveals an opaque purple color, and a knock-out nose of chocolate, walnuts, minerals, spice, and blackberry and cassis fruit. Exceptionally full-bodied, with exhilarating level of glycerin, richness, and personality, this wine, despite its low acidity, possesses extremely high levels of tannin to go along with its equally gargantuan proportions of fruit. It is a fabulous Latour that should age effortlessly for 40-50 years.

Score: 96Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (115), February 1998

k licorice, cedar, cigar box and fresh herbs. Full-bodied and very structured, with firm, silky tannins and a long finish. Needs time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2009

Score: 94James Suckling, Wine Spectator, January 2007

Deep garnet-brick in color, the nose is well developed, displaying dried berry, leather, vanilla pod and anise notes with a faint whiff of potpourri. The palate is wonderfully fleshy and opulent with velvety, approachable tannins and a long finish.
