Magnum. Round, ripe, open earthy and full meaty complex, cedar wood, damp earth aromas, touch of volatile acidity, soft palate and tannins, firm acidity Pauillac elegant, fruit confit and dried, at its peak not to age for much longer. (RS)
The ’70 Les Forts de Latour has aged exceedingly well over forty years. A light, gravely, earthy, mulberry-scented bouquet that just lacks a little definition due to its rusticity. Medium-bodied on the palate, still retaining a pleasing degree of freshness with red-berried fruit: vestiges of raspberry and wild strawberry, although dominated by cigar box and leather. Smooth texture, quite corpulent, as if the merlot is in the driving seat rather than the Cabernet. Soft landing on the finish. Drink now. Tasted June 2009. (Neal Martin's Wine Journal)
