Tasting notes

One of the great wines of the vintage, the 1978 Latour has reached full maturity. While it does not possess the extraordinary concentration of the massive 1970, or the power of the 1975, the 1978 offers a stunningly fragrant nose of roasted herbs, sweet, jammy black fruits, nuts, and minerals. There is almost an iron taste, as if it were a vitamin supplement. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with fat, rich, concentrated flavors of black fruits, earth, and smoke. Although it has been delicious for some time, this wine reveals no signs of weakening.
