1971 Chateau Latour 1971 1er Grand Cru Classe Pauillac
Scoring 94/100 Parker points, this red wine from the very good 1971 vintage is "possibly the wine of the vintage. It offers extraordinary aromatic complexity as well as surprisingly deep, concentrated flavours. It is dark opaque garnet colour with amber at the edge is followed by a spectacular bouquet of dried herbs, cedar, smoky black fruit, and coffee. Rich, but structured, with moderate tannin, this medium-bodied, elegant yet complex wine possesses a sweet mid-palate in addition to a long, concentrated finish with abundant tannin."
