2006 Château Latour Grand Vin Pauillac Premier Grand Cru Classé

 

Château Latour

Frankrijk

Bordeaux

Pauillac

Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot

“When everybody else failed, Château Latour still came up with a decent wine”, schrijft Oz Clarke in zijn boek ‘Bordeaux - the wines, the vineyards and the winemakers’. Als student kon hij zich een groot jaar niet veroorloven, dus begon hij met de mindere jaren. En dat pakte goed uit. Niet verwonderlijk, want Latour behoort uiteraard tot de vijf Premiers Grands Crus Classés van de Médoc.

"Not an outstanding vintage overall for Bordeaux, 2006 had the potential to be very good. Things got off to a pretty impressive start in Pauillac this year, and then it all went a bit pear-shaped toward the end with a cool, rainy August and late September. Vineyard diligence and a take-no-prisoners attitude on the sorting table were the keys to relative success here. While it is clear Latour had their work cut out for them with this 2006 release, they managed to produce an incredibly impressive grand vin, which is drinking beautifully now yet should cellar gracefully over the next 20+ years. The 2006 Latour was just released this year and is composed of 91.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.5% Merlot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and lovely open nose with florals and red fruit aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and minerally with a compelling iron ore character and great length. 10,000 cases were produced (representing 38% of production)." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Dense and rich Latour with layered and velvety tannins and gorgeous fruit. At the same time, there’s lots of wood. Coffee flavor, too. Full-bodied, layered and structured. Needs more time to soften the tannins. Try in 2021." - James Suckling

"Dark concentrated crimson. Minerals and confidence on the nose with lots of fully ripe fruit. Proper broad array of complex flavours wash over the palate in the stony Latour idiom. Very dry finish. Almost surly in its determination to go its own way! Still quite a bit of tannin. Savoury finish with some layers – one of the more complex wines. " - Jancis Robinson

"Bright full ruby. Slightly stern aromas of cassis, graphite, licorice, incense and flowers. Then dense and penetrating, with terrific energy to the subtle dark fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. There's a coolness to the fruit that makes this wine dramatically different from the Forts de Latour. Finishes with big, building tannins and a powerful sense of structure. A fairly large-scaled Latour but not particularly sweet in the early going. In fact, this went into a shell with 24 hours in the recorked bottle." - Vinous

"Offers a pure nose of currant and blackberry, with crushed fruit. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and very polished, refined tannins. Long and classy. Best after 2016." - Wine Spectator

"Latour has always had the reputation of producing great wines in the less great vintages. The 2006 is a case in point. It brings structure and ripeness into a form that is almost ethereal. That elegance doesn't take away from the powerful fruit. The fruit in fact melds into the structure with ease. And, as a reminder this is a 2006, the density gives way to freshness on the finish." - Wine Enthusiast
