An exceptional vintage year. The 1959 Chateau Latour Pauillac has a beautiful color and expressive roasted flavors, fullness and smoothness.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
"Dark garnet with an amber edge, the 1959 Latour reveals a touch of volatile acidity in the nose, along with aromas of melted caramel, tobacco, and jammy red and black fruits. As the wine sat in the glass, notes of minerals, coffee, spice, and underbrush emerged ... this sumptuous, complex, fragrant, super-rich Latour cuts a broad swath across the palate..."
Wine Spectator (WS): 98
"Superb, ... Equal in quality to the perfect 1961. Thick and rich, with berry, cherry and tobacco character, it shows layers of ripe fruit and velvety tannins that go on and on at the finish. Exciting wine."
