Latour Chenin Blanc 2018

This Chenin Blanc from Israel is drinking very nicely now.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Showing a lovely nose with flowers.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, bitter herbs, spices, light earth and white pepper.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and good by itself or with food. I had it a year ago, and it is drinking nicer now.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$30.

Pale green in color w/gorgeous nose of honey, roasted hazelnuts, orchard & citrus fruit & gala apples, w/hints of vanilla & coconut. Soft & supple on mid-palate w/smooth clean finish. Just a bit flabby in the middle, but really delicious. — 18 days ago

Les Forts de Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Had this in an early stage. Dark w/ lots of black licorice. Completely different wine tonight. This is what I look for by waiting on wine.

The nose shows floral, ripe, bright, slightly candied fruits of; dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, black plums, poached to baked strawberries, raspberries, powdery lead pencil, dark, rich forest floor w/ leaves, dark & mid spices, black licorice, mixed berry cola, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanillin, soft leather, fresh tobacco, dry, crushed limestone, river stone, dark, red, blue florals framed in violets.

The mouthfeel is gorgeous. The palate shows its relationship w/ its big brother. The length & balance are excellent. Integration is finally showing like a non stubborn 2000 or one that is finally ready. Floral, ripe, bright, slightly candied fruits of; dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, black plums, poached to baked strawberries, raspberries, powdery lead pencil, dark, rich forest floor w/ leaves, dark & mid spices, black licorice, mixed berry cola for days, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanillin, soft leather, fresh tobacco, dry, crushed limestone, moist grey clay, river stone, dark, red, blue florals soaked in violets. The acidity is full warm spring day. The well knitted & balanced finish stuns. Starts fruit forward, cola that fall onto earthy perfection.

Elegant, complex wine candy w/ a 3 1/2 hour decant.

Cheers to the King of steak - Allen Brothers & the King of Cabernet - Latour.

Do you think these second label First Growths are the way to go for the poor man?

@Joshua Fisher in good vintages, definitely. Depending on your budget, in grand vintages, maybe…at least a few for sure.

Didn’t expect a ton out of this but it over delivered in spades. At the tail end of its drinking window with slight butterscotch notes but otherwise fresh on the palate and super enjoyable — a month ago

Grand Vin de Château Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

Popped, 1.5 hrs slow ox. Used a Durand to open, and the cork was probably penetrated 7/8 of the way through with a soft crimson hue, but probably could have opened this with a regular corkscrew. A sublime bottle of wine. I adore this BDX vintage, and this btl was no exception. Pitch perfect aromas of soft cedar, charcoal, smoke, dries bluberry and raspberry. Gorgeous on the palate, with a still present juicy acidic core, lovely density, waves of dried fruit, secondary and tertiary flavors and a very soft tannic finish. — 21 days ago
