The 2015 Latour is a blend of 97.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.6% Merlot, and 0.3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet in color, it needs a little swirling to uncover the latent scents of black and red currant preserves, followed by notes of juicy blackberries, baked plums, and incense, plus touches of graphite and violets. The medium-bodied palate is completely filled with energetic black fruit and exotic spice layers, framed by super-ripe, firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with a muscular burst of pure black fruit and lingering mineral sparks.

Aromas of iron, oyster shell, rust and stones with blueberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, yet ever so polished and refined. It rolls off the palate with fruit and salty flavors. Tight, focused and always refined. Pretty length. 97% cabernet sauvignon gives this brightness. Tasted in 2022. Rating: 98 Points; James Suckling

Aromatically this floats out of the glass, intense and concentrated but full of light and life. Waves of flavour come at you, from crushed raspberries, pomegranate and blackcurrant to fresher redcurrant and lemongrass set against richer truffles, crayon and smoked earth. Mouthwatering, this really is a vintage where you can see the impact of the biodynamic vineyard work, with a greater sense of sculpting and violet florality than you would have found in this Pauillac powerhouse a decade earlier, without sacrificing structure and depth. As it opens, the sweetness of a ripe vintage comes through in edges of smoked caramel. A beautiful wine, thoroughly enjoyable, extremely well-handled and set to power through the decades. Rating: 98 Points; Jane Anson

This is without doubt one of the wines of the vintage for very unusual reasons and it is possibly going to be remembered as one of the wines of the decade, if you consider it is a rare, virtual mono-varietal. The attack and tension here is utterly stunning in the sense that it literally stuns the palate. The fruit is so concentrated and yet so ethereal it is extraordinary. I have never seen ‘pure’ (97%) Cabernet looks so forthright, magnificent, nor more Zen-like and slender. The finish is immense and the line between the entry and the exit is laser driven, except that there is no end to the finish. It simply doesn’t have is still going if not on my palate in my brain.
