1985 Ch. Latour

1985 Ch. Latour

This is the best showing yet of the 1985 Latour, a wine that I have consistently rated in the mid to upper eighties. Most tastings of it have revealed a light, precocious style of Latour. At two tastings this summer, the wine was considerably richer and fuller. While surprisingly evolved and soft, it appears to possess more body and depth than I initially projected. It is an outstanding wine, with deep color, soft tannins, and plenty of the classic mineral, cassis, walnut-like fragrance that characterizes many vintages of Latour. Approachable now, the wine should reach its plateau of maturity by the mid-nineties and last through the first decade or more of the next century. - 90pts WA
