Forts de Latour 1998
Tasting Notes Forts de Latour 1998
Intense purple. Similar colour to the First wine but with less intensity on the nose. Tannic and a fine vanilla finish. Well-integrated New Oak. Medium length. Superb 2nd wine. Tasted June 1999.
Latour's second wine exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a nose of black fruits, ketchup, earth, and minerals. Moderately tannic and closed, it is reminiscent of its bigger brother. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the next two decades.
