Parker über: Chateau Latour 1er Cru

-- Parker: This is an interesting as well as great vintage for Latour. As indicated in my barrel tasting report, Latour's 1994 possesses an atypically high percentage of Merlot (27%) in the final blend. Because of this, the wine appears to have a sweeter, more fleshy texture than is typical for a young Latour, but do not make the mistake of thinking this will be a commercially-styled, easy to drink wine. It exhibits an opaque dark ruby/purple color, and a backward, intense textbook nose of walnut and cassis scents complemented by smoky pain grille notes that build in the glass. This full-bodied, powerful, layered Latour reveals high tannin, but no bitterness or astringency. The superb purity, fabulous precision, and remarkable length should ensure 35-40 years of longevity. Readers will find more fat, flesh, and glycerin than usual for a young Latour (save for such great vintages as 1982 and 1990), but don't be deceived, this wine requires 8-10 years of cellaring. 94/100


Galloni über: Chateau Latour 1er Cru

-- Galloni: Very deep ruby-red. Pungent, inky, nutty aromas of blackcurrants and minerals; very sexy oak treatment gives the nose a wonderful sweetness. Big, minerally, and shapely, with lovely purity of dark berry flavor. Has clarity and grip, but not quite the richness of the '95. The tannins build in the glass, but are in harmony with the wine's middle palate material. Uncanny length for the vintage. 92-94/100


Wine Spectator über: Chateau Latour 1er Cru

-- Wine Spectator: Classic Cabernet style. Intense aromas of plums and cherries, with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, with juicy and ripe tannins and a long finish. Very well-structured.--Latour vertical. Best after 2003. 91/100

Mein Winzer


Die Tatsache, dass der Grand Vin von Château Latour zu den kräftigsten, gehaltvollsten, tanninreichsten und konzentriertesten Weinen der Welt zählt, dürfte hinlänglich bekannt sein. Daher hier nur einige Worte zum Zweitwein des Château Latour: der Forts de Latour ist kein klassischer Zweitwein aus...
