Pauillac. A terrific wine for the vintage, Latour's 1993 reveals an opaque purple color, a backward, cedar, black walnut, cassis, and earth-scented nose, medium to full body, gorgeously rich, concentrated fruit, moderately high tannin (but no astringency), and a sweet, long, powerful finish. The wine does not possess any of the vegetal, green pepper characteristics of the vintage, nor any hint of hollowness or harshness. This wine may prove to merit an even higher rating. Is this vintage the modern day clone of the 1967 and 1971? Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. Last tasted 1/97; Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1; Jan 1998 Robert Parker 90 Points;

Latour's 1993 is a top success for the vintage, but it will not be ready to drink for at least 8-10 years. Approximately 50% of the harvest was eliminated from the final blend. In stylistic terms, the 1993 is similar to this property's 1966 and 1971 - both among the finest efforts for these vintages. The dense, medium to full-bodied 1993 exhibits layers of richness, plenty of dry, hard tannin, and enough sweet fruit, glycerin, and extraction to balance out the wine's tough personality. This muscular, dense wine requires 10 years of cellaring; consume it over the subsequent 15-20 years. Wine Advocate # 97; Feb 1995 Robert Parker (90-92 Points) Drink: 2005 - 2025
