Wine With Bok - 9.75/10 Stars

GOOD BUT NOT GREAT

Had many bottles of Latour 96, this was another bottle that I feel exactly the same as previous bottles, good but not great. Definitely not worth the RP99 rating, as the Lafite 96 sibling suppressed this Latour with no effort. Very typical Latour nose, strong Pauillac style. Content was very slightly green and very thick juice. (6/2018)


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 99 Points 

The 1996 Latour is medium to deep garnet in color with a profound earthy, meaty, gamey nose with hints of blueberry preserves, crème de cassis and pencil shavings. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and packed with muscular fruit, with a firm, ripe, grainy backbone and epically long finish. Showing much more youthfully than the 2000 tasted on the same day and still possessing bags of youthful fruit in the mid-palate, this beauty is going to go on and on! (2/2019)


Decanter - 98 Points 

Inky black even at 25 years old. A hugely impressive wine, with plenty of chewy tannins still in play, ripples of cassis, bilberry and blackberry fruits, set against olive paste, charcoal and eucalyptus. Things have softened around the edges no question, this is still full of life with decades ahead of it, but this is a great moment to start enjoying its promise. Textbook Latour in many ways, for its austerity and power, and its serious character that is underlaid by concentrated pleasure showcasing 'the gift of sub-gravel clays'. (1/2021)
