This is, of course, the second label of Chateau Latour. In recent years the price on the seconds has sky-rocketed as well. That said, this is an excellent wine in a really nice place right now. Purple in color with ruby swirls, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with cassis, tobacco, leather, slight graphite and spice. Also a bit of the funk. Full bodied. Great balance. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is drinking well. Nots of cassis, slight dried cherries and a bit of leather. Some underlying char and funk. Long finish. Complex and deep. Drink over the next twelve to twenty years. Nice on its own but better with food. This would work well with a filet mignon.
