Chateau Latour Pauillac 1966

Chateau Latour Pauillac 1966

Sku: 003995

1966: 96 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "Tasted 11 Times With Consistent Notes The 1966 Latour is the wine of the vintage! Very dark ruby colored with an amber edge, the wine boasts a top-notch bouquet of leather, spices, tobacco, and ripe fruit. Quite concentrated, rich and powerful, it has shed much of its ferocious tannin and is easily the best wine produced by Latour in the sixties, omitting of course, the monumental 1961."

 Wine Advocate 96 points (Jun 2000)
The wine of the vintage, the 1966 Latour is a classic, old style Bordeaux that has required decades to become drinkable. A dark, opaque garnet color is followed by a fabulous nose of cedar, sweet leather, black fruits, prunes, and roasted walnuts, refreshing underlying acidity, sweet but noticeable tannin, and a spicy finish. This powerful, vigorous, immensely impressive, concentrated Latour has reached its plateau of maturity, where it will remain for another 10-20 years.
