Enestående høj kvalitet fra selveste Château Latour.

Les Forts de Latour betragtes fortsat af mange som 2. vinen til den legendariske Château Latour. Dette var snarere tilfældet da vinen første gang blev lanceret tilbage i 1966, men i dag indeholder vinen næsten ingen frugt fra samme marker som førstevinen, og må derfor betragtes som sin helt egen. Slottets yngre stokke finder nemlig i overvejende grad til den forrygende 3. vin "Pauillac de Latour".

Med Les Forts de Latour får man i stedet en vin, der blæser langt de fleste slottes første vine fuldstændigt af banen. I denne utrolige årgang 2017 består det endelige blend af 65.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, og 0.8% Cabernet Franc.

En vin, der virkelig åbner sig op med tid og luft, og som afslører en vidunderlig bouquet af underskønne smagsnoter. Du mødes af solbær, mørk chokolade, pibetobak og nellikker. Eftersmagen bliver hængende i munden imponerende længe - og gud ske tak og lov for det, for det smager helt forrygende. Vinen kan nydes allerede nu, men har et udviklingspotentiale som strækker sig minimum over de næste 20-25 år..

The 2017 Les Forts de Latour is composed of 65.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, and 0.8% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet in color, it comes galloping out with bold notions of warm cassis, blackberry pie, and dried roses, plus suggestions of crushed rocks, wild sage, and underbrush. The medium-bodied palate is completely filled with delicate waves of bright, refreshing black and red berry layers, supported by super-ripe, super-fine tannins, finishing long and perfumed. This is stunning!

Vinous - 94

The 2017 Les Forts de Latour has a stupendous bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and oyster shell aromas, very well defined and focused and to be honest, much more intense than I was expecting. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, so elegant and poised with delicate touches of graphite and cracked black pepper towards the pixelated finish. What an outstanding, over-performing Les Forts de Latour. 2023-2055.

James Suckling - 95

Juicy and spicy with fresh tobacco, redcurrants and crushed stone character. Medium to full body. Medium velvety tannins and a delicious finish. Will age beautifully as well. Better after 2026.

Decanter - 94

Smells lovely, really aromatic and shining out of the glass, forward and expressive with clarity and precision on the nose full of red fruit and floral scents. Sleek and crisp, this has energy and lifeforce, I love the shape and straightforwardness but it’s the texture that’s so captivating - slightly firm but dense and chalky tannins give the bounce and cushioning on the palate while the fruit is lean and well defined. So well worked, feels careful, controlled, refined and polished. Sophisticated and just so seamless. Extremely young right now, coiled and tense still, direct from start to finish, it needs to slow down and soften and relax. Lovely pure and perfumed red fruits raspberry and blueberries alongside a slightly sharp, bitter grapefruit edge to the tannins as well as graphite and slate which lingers on the tongue and gives the mighty grip that doesn't let go. Stylish and enjoyable. 64 PIT, 6.7% press wine. 45.4% production. Harvest 11 September to 4 October. Technical director Hélène Genin. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend.

Robert Parker - 94

A blend of 65.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 0.8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Les Forts de Latour is deep garnet-purple in color and strides confidently out of the glass with classic notes of plum preserves, warm cassis and pencil shavings with nuances of mulberries, pencil lead, Indian spices and forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate packs a lot of fruit into a very elegant, tightly knit palate, delivering expressive blackberry and spicy flavors with a firm frame of grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long with a peppery kick.
