Wine Critic Reviews:

A beauty, the opaque dense purple-colored 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanillin, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour. As the wine sat in the glass, scents of roasted espresso and toasty new oak emerged. This classic will require considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050. Robert Parker

Sokolin 1995 Latour Tasting Notes:

Imagine the mouth-watering fragrance of a masterfully concocted Latour. The smell of perfectly ripe fruit weaving itself into the chirping of nearby birds, as you're pulled into a lush, natural dreamscape. Drinking the beautiful 1995 Latour is somehow even more wonderful, as the jammy, juicy fruit overwhelms your senses, and you're sent spiraling into a whirlpool of emotional bliss. These bottles are not the most expensive on the market, so you can use them as a jumping-off point during your viticultural journey.

The flavor profile is equally interesting and satisfying in a primal, powerful sort of way. The warm notes of roasted espresso and a pungent oaky scent create a nostalgic, immersive drinking experience, as your tastebuds almost scream with satisfaction at the extended finish of a 1995 Latour. Youthful yet fragrant. Accessible yet absurdly delicious. Impress important guests or simply share the wine with your family and close friends on a warm summer evening - the choice is yours.

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
Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.

  1. A seductive stunner that holds onto your tastebuds

    A fine vintage for Latour, very few can even hope to dispute that. I've tasted slightly better, but I would have to be out of my mind to refuse if offered. It's a dark-garnet delight, a seductive stunner that holds onto your tastebuds just as tightly as it does your mind. The scent of vanilla is very prominent on the nose, begging you to take just a single sip, and then another…<br/>It's an approachable wine, yet one that offers lots of complexity for those with a developed palate and experienced mind. Drink or hold, the choice is yours - in either case, the experience is thrilling when that cork gets pulled.

  2. I can't put into words how strongly I recommend the 1995 Latour - everyone should try it.

    Few wines can capture that elusive Bordeaux essence quite like a fine Latour. Full-bodied, powerful, rich in both tannic representation and flavor intensity. The color of the wine is a deep, dark ruby, pulling you in slowly but surely until the bottle is empty and your mind is everywhere and nowhere at once. The bouquet contains traces of walnuts, leather, and black currant, among other notes. I haven't yet met a person who can be satisfied with just a sniff, and this wine offers far more than that, even when consumed casually. I can't put into words how strongly I recommend the 1995 Latour - everyone should try it.
