Aromas of crushed berries, flowers and stones. It’s very ripe and rich. Yet it remains fresh. It’s full-bodied, with silky tannins and a crisp finish. It needs another year or two to soften but it’s already gorgeous to drink. Decant an hour or two before.
*Barrel Sample* With its dryness, this seems at first to be all tannin. There is, though, a black currant fruit flavor that shows through after the wine has been in the mouth for a while, and the aftertaste has fine acidity. This should develop well. (RV)
Dense ruby purple, with the oak still showing a trifle too much, this 2005 is concentrated, rich, and possibly the most extracted and densest of any wine I have ever tasted from Latour-Martillac. Still youthful (with lots of cassis and graphite), this 2005 has entered its plateau of maturity. It should hit its prime in another 5 years and last a quarter of a century or more. 90+ (RP)
Very thick and sweet and a bit furry. Lacks freshness though certainly opulent. (16/20 points)
Medium red-ruby. Full-blown aromas of plum, mocha, hot stones, camphor and nutty, spicy oak, along with a whiff of leather. Sweet, lush and plump; today I find that this wine has less shape than the young 2007, even if it's richer. Finishes with round but chewy tannins that call for some bottle aging. (ST)
Decant this and its elements join into a fresh and juicy steak frites wine. The fruit is pretty and red, with a hint of green peppercorn to the tannin.
Exhibits blackberry, spice and sweet tobacco on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a fruity, earthy finish. Very refined. (JS)
