Château Latour Grand Vin de Château Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

$1045

...This is just a beautiful Latour that stood out when tasted blind, even amongst the 2000 and 2005. It just has a beautiful bouquet that has a level of purity that may not have been achieved before although initially it is quite subdued. The palate is full-bodied with a tannic entry, a sense of symmetry at play here, enthralling length and harmony. This is a legend in the making. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Chateau Latour is my favorite 1st Growth, they demand patience and inspire not just hedonistic pleasure but also analytical thought. Both amazing but need massive amounts of air or another 15-20 years minimum in the cellar. I get the feeling they both will hit a plateau once they blossom and slowly move towards full maturity for decades. The nose on the 2005 rose with little agitation and shot from the hip to nose with ease. By far the most youthful and intense nose of the evening. The 2000 was not dissimilar in its progression, if a bit more refined from the extra few years in the bottle. A cerebral wine that was also deeply pleasurable, it kept bringing me to what this wine will be like in 15-20 or more years. Easily a 50 year wine from a macro view.

Luscious and fruity, but still well shy of its true potential.

Somewhat subtle yet mesmerizing nose. Give this baby time. 5, 10 years? More?

Ex Chateau Release...absolutely stunning. This 2005 is starting to shed its baby fat and is truly a majestic wine. Drinking beautifully today but will continue to age for years to come. 98pts

One of my most memorable wine experiences. Bottle was in great condition. The '05 vintage is well documented for the quality and on the back of that Latour really shot the lights out.

Tasted blind: Med+ intensity, lots of black fruits, stewed cherries, cherry pie, underlying new oak, beginning to just show some tertiary character. Palate was ripe, med+ tannin, med acidity. Similar flavors on the palate. A bit of black pepper and cinnamon. Good finish. Initial conclusions were either a a high quality southern Rhone producer, possibly Languedoc (Mas Du Mas Gassac), perhaps a Minervois, an Italian super Tuscan (similar to 'Ornellaia), Napa (in a cooler vintage) and only was Bordeaux a final guess!
