Latour, one of the most consistent winemaker in Bordeaux, did not make a 5 star vintage on a top vintage of 1989! I was puzzled what has gone wrong with Latour in 89…..
It started off strongly. Nose was so fruity and top grade fragrance it was my top choice at the beginning. Palate was superb too, with great elegance of fruits. However it took 30 mins for the weakness to surface; first, nose of greenness surfaced, then the palate started to fall apart with diluted taste. Total conundrum!
