Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, January 2004, Score: 19

Deep, deep opaque colour. An intensity of dark black berry fruits. In the palate this wine is all about intensity and masculinity. Hints of dark black chocolate, with notes of blueberry and dark berries. This is a big brooding wine, with extraordinary weight and power, but beautifully in keeping with a feeling of richness and natural concentration. This has a feeling of true class and the life and freshness on the finish provide an additional layer of quality and complexity. A potentially great wine in the making.

Producer

Château Latour

It is a common misconception that Château Latour was named after its cream-coloured tower - a 17th century edifice that served as a dovecote. The original tower that gave its name to this exemplary property was built in the 15th century as a watchtower to fend off invading pirates during the Hundred Years War. Unfortunately, it has long been eroded away. It can be considered the King of the First Growths, having the extraordinary power, structure and presence.

Region

Pauillac, Red Bordeaux

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
