Tasting Notes Latour 2006

95

The 2006 Latour performed even better from bottle than from barrel. Only 38% of the production (10,000 cases) made it into the grand vin, a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. From barrel, I thought it was a modern day version of the 1996 or 1986, and certainly the 1996 comparison still holds. I thought it was somewhat austere from barrel, but that is no longer an issue. This is a beautifully rich Chateau Latour boasting a dense ruby/purple color, a sweet, smoky, charcoal, cassis, graphite, and forest floor-scented nose, full body, an attractive freshness, and sweet, noble tannins. This layered Latour is one of the vintage's top dozen or so wines. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2030.

Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Latour ’06 has a wonderfully defined nose with blackberry, macerated black cherries, a hint of quince jus, graphite and scorched earth. At this early juncture, it comes across as a little sullen compared to the other First Growths, but that will change in time. The palate is medium-bodied with that power channelled brilliantly across the mouth. Vibrant acidity, expanding with each sip; refined with a meaty/dried blood note towards the austere, earthy finish. Beautifully integrated new oak, this is an excellent Latour. Tasted January 2010.
