K&L Notes

99 points Neal Martin: "The 1961 Latour is a legendary wine, one that flirts with perfection and this was consistent with the bottle poured at the Latour vertical three weeks earlier. After so many years it remains deep in color with light bricking on the rim. The bouquet is utterly ethereal, so pure and refined with vestiges of black fruit, pencil lead and mint, though the latter is not as pronounced as on the 1945. The palate is intense although not as aloof as I found the 1961 a few years ago. Perhaps it is mellowing with age, yet the symmetry of this Pauillac is astonishing, the edginess and aristocratic personality almost overwhelming. It is a deeply impressive wine, not caring a jot about doling out sensory pleasure. However that is quintessential Latour. Tasted at the International Business & Wine First Growth Dinner at the Four Seasons." (Vinous, 06/2018)
