Chateau Latour, Pauillac, France, 2003

Chateau Latour, Pauillac, France, 2003

A blend of 91.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8.7% Merlot with just under 14% natural alcohol. Structured and potentially more massive and long lived. An elixir of momentous proportions, it boasts a dense purple color as well as an extraordinarily flamboyant bouquet of black fruits, graphite, crushed rocks, subtle oak and a notion of wet steel. It hits the palate with a thundering concoction of thick, juicy blue and black fruits, lead pencil shavings and a chalky minerality. Full-bodied, but very fresh with a finish that lasts over a minute.
