Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

19.5 JR / 96 WA / 94 JS

Very deep crimson. A very big-boned wine of great density. Some very strong menthol character with a touch of liquorice too and pretty dry on the finish. This seems to have taken on flesh since its rather austere youth and was even rather charming – in a distinctly 'masculine' way. No hurry to drink this. March 2011. - Jancis Robinson

Tasted at dinner at Domaine de Chevalier. The Latour ’70 can be such a variable beast. This is certainly one of the better, more representative bottles. Deep garnet in colour, nice limpidity in the glass. It has a beautiful nose that to be honest, sweeps aside the respectable Domaine de Chevalier ’70 poured alongside, like a lord dismissing his servant with a swish of his hand. Graphite, wild black fruit, freshly rolled tobacco and a faint hint of truffle. The palate is medium-bodied and after forty years, still quite austere but the balance is nailed. Masculine and foursquare, a Latour with a lot of horsepower…but not necessarily revving in top gear…at least not after four decades. Lovely cedar and mint on the long, long finish. Wonderful. I do not thing this wine will get any better, but a divine vinous experience now. Drink now. Tasted April 2010. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Soft, round and wonderful with currants, licorice and delicate berries with a stony, wet earth undertone. Full and velvety texture. - James Suckling
