Château Latour Les Forts de Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$239

The 2000 Les Forts de Latour is a seriously endowed wine with notes of black walnuts, black currants, crushed rock, tobacco and spice box. Full-bodied, luscious...it certainly can evolve for another 15 or more years, and looks to be slightly richer and longer-lived than I originally predicted. Robert Parker

The fruits are bright, ripe and elegant. The core is dark cassis followed by black cherries, bing cherries, blackberries, dark raspberries, leather that melts in your mouth, minerality like cotton candy, sweet soft silky spices, baking spices, black licorice, rich dark earth and a finish that doesn't stop. Structure, balance, length and acidity is dead on. It's heaven in a bottle! This is why I drink and love wine.

Preferring 01 today but this has stuffing to last...still a bit shut down and showing light. Tasty crispy claret!

Reached back in the cellar for this one...and it was totally worth it. Classic older Bordeaux with notes of dried currants, leather, but still with plenty of fruit. The tannins have integrated beautifully, making for a seamless mouthfeel from start to finish. It’s not clear that this will improve at this point, but with a cork like that I’m sure this would have lasted for quite a few more years. Terrific!
