Another exceptional vintage from Latour.
All of my wine is held in Bond at Vine International in London (UK). My cases are in perfect condition and typically all come in Original Wooden Case. My private agent, Mr Robert Reed, is managing the sale of my stock, and would love to talk to you about the wine and arrange shipping of the wine to your preferred location.
I have over 4 cases of this most excellent wine sitting in bond in London.
Full provenance available on request and pictures of stock in warehouse available to serious interested parties.
96 Points - Robert Parker - 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.
94 Points - Stephen Tanzer - Deep ruby-red color. More expressive aromas of crystallized dark berries, dark chocolate and animal fur. Lush and sweet; thick but delineated. Wonderfully concentrated. This, too, seems rather withdrawn today, but the strength of material is clear to see. Finishes with firm tannins and explosive fruit that goes on and on.
The history of Chateau Latour dates back at least to the 14th century, even though the vineyards for which it is now world-renowned were not fully established until the 17th century.
The estate is located at the southern edge of Pauillac bordering the St. Julien vineyards of Ch. Léoville Las Cases, and covers 78 hectares. After a period when it was under English ownership, in the form of the Pearson Group, owners of the Financial Times, and Harvey’s of Bristol, the property passed to Allied Lyons in 1989 and was then bought in 1993 by the French billionaire industrialist François Pinault, whose empire was to grow to include Yves St. Laurent, Gucci and Christie’s Auction House.
