Robert Parker quoted (Jan 03)
Weediness and a slight shortness in the finish are the only flaws in an otherwise relatively good effort from Latour a Pomerol. The color is a deep, dark garnet with some amber at the edge. A big, spicy, sweet nose of black fruits, tobacco, espresso, and stewed roasted vegetables is followed by a relatively fat, ripe, medium-bodied wine with low acidity and some sweet tannins in the finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. Last tasted. 1/02.
