Tasting Notes Forts de Latour 1997

87-88

The 1997 Les Forts de Latour reveals a rich, blackberry, jammy (the French call it confiture) nose nicely intermingled with spice and earth. Soft, with low acidity, medium body, and good length, this plump, precocious tasting Les Forts de Latour should drink well during its first decade of life. Like so many of the 1997s I tasted, Latour's offerings are extremely evolved, soft, precocious tasting wines that are easy to comprehend.

Quite aromatic on the nose. Slightly austere but blossoms nicely in the mouth. Good structure. Lacks some ripeness. A little stemmy. Good length. Good second wine. Tasted February 2000.
