The 1966 Latour remains an exemplar of the vintage, certainly one of the best, if not the best Left Bank wine of the vintage. Here, served blind, its quality was a beacon, quintessentially Pauillac with that trademark graphite seam through the intense black fruit, cold stone and a touch of tobacco. It remains undimmed by its age (though this was served from a magnum of impeccable provenance). The palate is medium-bodied and that graphite theme continues unabated, flanked by beautiful, precise and pure vestiges of black fruit. "Pure class" are the final two words of my tasting note and at 50 years old, they sum up this immensely impressive Château Latour. Tasted September 2016. (NM)
Still has a deep and bright colour, much deeper than 1966 Lafite. The nose is intense, with ample black fruit and leather aromas - it has a lot on offer. The palate displays an amazing acidity and is still very powerful: complex with some lovely leathery and truffle characters. Very long finish. Still youthful.
