VM97WI98
“The 2017 Latour, which was bottled mid-June and mid-July, has a tightly wound bouquet with black fruit, pencil lead and a strong marine influence. This is utterly compelling. The palate is... medium-bodied with fine tannins, what you may call an "athletic" Latour. There is no "fat" hear, just pure black mineral-infused fruit with quintessential Pauillac notes of graphite and a touch of cedar on the persistent finish. Superb. Drink 2024-2060.” 97 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com (March 2020), February 2020 “A blend of 92.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.8% Merlot, and 0.1% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Latour is deep garnet in color. It needs just a bit of convincing to get it to reveal gorgeous notes of warm cassis, black raspberries, and juicy black plums, plus wafts of violets, licorice, and cumin seed with a hint of cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate expands as the nuanced mineral, black fruit, and earthy layers unfurl, beautifully framed by ever-so-plush tannins and amazing tension, finishing long and perfumed. This is such a gorgeous Latour!” 98 pts., Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Independent, December 2022
