I have been acquainted with the Latour 1970 on three or four occasions, which has evinced some bottle variation, some lacking harmony and focus, others a big, hefty Latour demanding another ten years. Last tasted December 2004 at the vertical. Very deep, almost opaque garnet colour with youthful rim. Very backward, broody, sulky nose or scorched earth, leather and cigar box. Very smooth entry. Full-bodied and muscular, incredible concentration. Good depth. Notes of meat, dried blood, even gravy. Definitely a rich, savory Latour. Does not quite have the sophistication of the greatest Latour, its more the dimension of the wine that wows. Could drink this now but will age for years. Check the provenance if you find a bottle.
