2008 Ch LATOUR
2008 - Grand Vin - SKU: 126787

A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 0.75% Cabernet Franc and 0.25% Petit Verdot, weighing in at 13.5% alcohol.  Beautiful aromas of rose petal, red currant, minerals and plum.  On the palate there is a delicious graphite/mineral character with the soft, ripe red fruits.  A masterpiece of elegance, with ultra fine tannins, lovely weight and depth, around the core of sweet, understated fruit.  Fresh acidity, very good complexity and a long, satisfying finish.  A delightful Latour.  96 points, drink 2018 to 2045 (April 2011).
