Chateau Latour, Bordeaux, 1987

£350.00

Only grapes from the 47 ha surrounding the Chateau go into the "Grand Vin de Chateau Latour." Not recognised as one of the best years in Bordeaux. However, this wine is ready for drinking now and, in our opinion, cracking value for money at this price! But don't just take our word for it:

"The 1987 Latour was made from 75 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 25 percent Merlot, without any Cabernet Franc or Petit Verdot used in the blend. The wine has a deep ruby color, and a surprisingly backward yet promising bouquet of black currants, spicy oak, and herbs. In the mouth, it is medium bodied, exhibits more power and tannin than many wines in this vintage, and finishes with surprising authority. It is one of the few 1987s that I find not ready to drink. This is a notable success for Latour, comparable to their 1983 and 1985. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 4/91."
