BEST RUNNER UP!
After tasting 5 vintages of Les Forts de Latour, 03, 04, 05, 08 and 09, I must declare this 05 as the best vintage of Latour’s second wine! I believe it may even outperformed some mediocre Latour Grand Vins!
Elegant nose of smoke, faint vanilla and muted fruits. Palate was really impressive, first thing that striked me was the extraordinary balance between the fruits and acidity, almost perfect! Fruits were pure and clean as well, perfectly beautiful!
