The 2005 Latour was mind-blowingly profound in two recent tastings for this report. Deep and sensual to the core, the 2005 is utterly captivating. All the elements are so seamlessly put together. Graphite, crème de cassis, licorice, dark spice and lavender infuse the 2005 with so much energy. More than anything else, though, the 2005 is a Latour of texture and resonance. Even after several hours, the 2005 is fresh and full of energy. Wines like this are just life affirming. That's about all I can really say. Tasted two times. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, April 2021)

Vintage 1974 / autumn leaves, classic smell, taste is (a pity) too old

Fine moment for consumption. Dark berries, expressive, coffee, pencil lead, complex. Long, fresh and sweet tannins.

Mineral component and cassis coming through and setting table for woody and earthy aromas. Mouth offers density and polished tanins. Good length with fruit echoing in retro.

This just keeps getting better and better.

Dark clear fruit. Brooding tobacco and intense bloody fruit. Salinity and focus and great length. A surprise and a treat.
