The 2014 Latour is one of the very finest wines of a vintage that favored the northern M?doc. Mingling aromas of wild berries and cassis with hints of cigar wrapper, loamy soil, black truffles and classy new oak, it’sfull-bodied, rich and concentrated, its broad attack segueing into a deep, tightly wound mid-palate that?s framed by powdery, chalky tannins and bright acids, concluding with a long, mouthwatering finish. This classically balanced, youthfully structured young wine looks set to enjoy prodigious longevity. it’sreminiscent of a modern-day version of a cooler vintage such as 1996, though of course these days maturity is more complete and selection even more rigorous than was the case two decades ago.
