K&L Notes

100 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 1982 Latour has always been a quintessential Bordeaux and a quintessential Latour. This is just as composed and detailed as the finest bottles that I have encountered, bridled with captivating blackberry, graphite and cedar aromas that are brilliantly focused. Perhaps it is not quite as showy as it was a few years ago, yet it is still regal and as blue-blooded as they come. The palate is ineffably graceful and chiselled down to the finest detail. One bottle at the International Business and Wine dinner is perhaps more understated than previous examples, but another in Hong Kong delivers such tension and precision that you can only kowtow before it. The 1982 is a masterful, regal Latour and probably now the finest Left Bank exponent of this vintage. Tasted at the International Business & Wine Latour dinner at Ten Trinity and at the Latour dinner in Hong Kong." (O7/2018)

    This is a wine that lives up to its legend. I have had it once, blind, from my friend Jeff's cellar, and it was everything that it was cracked up to be. We had it with an incredible meal (Jeff is one of the best cooks I know) that started out with 1985 Krug - but that is another story! The Latour was paired with bacon-wrapped, dry-aged filet... Perfection. Cinnamon and I were in awe from the beginning, the wine was so big, yet also effortless. Pure Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and pure Pauillac lead pencil really sung in the glass. It has it all, and it is no secret, thus the price.
