Wine Critic Reviews:

Rich and ripe wine. Dark red color with an amber edge. Loads of meat, berry and tobacco character on the nose. Very rich. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a long, ultraripe fruit finish...

Wine Spectator

Sokolin 1985 Latour Tasting Notes:

If you want to build a home, you need to put together bricks, one by one, until you're standing in front of a house your own hands made. If you want to make bread, you need the right ingredients, time and dedication until you have a soft, warm loaf in your hands. If you want a spectacular wine, you devote your time to hand-picking the most beautiful purple clusters that will eventually smile back to you from a 1.5L bottle of the 1985 Latour.

Don't waste your time putting off the pleasure this wine can bring you. A classic, impressive Pauillac, with so much to give, starting with splendid red fruit and vanilla aromatics to the elegant, soft palate of rich fruit and full concentration, with silky tannins and a fruity aftertaste that will certainly follow you for a while. Don't miss this must-have beauty and drink it now or hold.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Latour: The Chateau Latour earned a prestigious First Growth spot in the Bordeaux 1855 Classification, and its track record is jaw-dropping for even the most distinguished wine connoisseurs. The vineyards themselves are reminiscent of gorgeous and complex garden mazes from tales of fantasy, with a distribution of 76% Cabernet Sauvigno, 22% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This combination comes together perfectly when grounded with an earthy undertone and punctuated with succulent cherries, lush mint, bold spice or a delicate yet sharp tobacco flavor. These bottles are the ideal partner to a robust evening cigar, as the worries of your life fade into the smoke, and the orchestral perfume of flavors sings to you like a muse, inspiring you towards new triumphs and achievements.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
