Wine Critic Reviews:

A brilliant offering, which should be drinkable much earlier than the blockbuster 2000, the 2001 Latour boasts an inky/ruby/purple color to the rim as well as a glorious bouquet of black currants, crushed stones, vanilla, and hints of truffles and oak. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance primarily Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it reveals a sweetness on the palate that is atypical for such a young Latour. The beautiful integration of tannin, acidity, and wood is stunning. The wine flows across the palate with fabulous texture, purity, and presence. This luscious, full-bodied Latour was surprisingly open-knit on the three occasions I tasted it from bottle. However, do not mistake its aging ability as this 2001, despite its precociousness, will last 20-25 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.

  1. Mouthfeel is out of this world.

    While I prefer the previous vintage, the 2001 Latour has a lot to offer if you're willing to give it some time. On the nose, it's strong with blackcurrant and smoke aromatics, and there's a hint of walnuts that adds intrigue as you indulge deeper. Mouthfeel is out of this world.<br/>Make sure you have a bottle ready by the next decade. This wine is only going to get better, and the sky's the limit if it's already this good. It's also pretty affordable given the quality, so there's no reason not to get one. Can't wait for it to age a bit more.

    Doesn't get much better than this. With an opulent, powerful scent in the opening act, followed by beautiful tannins on the palate and culminating with a long, mesmerizing finish, this wine is nothing short of stunning. The best part? It still has years and years ahead of it. I recommend stocking up because this is a vintage you will want to return to every couple of years.<br/>My son is coming home from deployment soon, and that day has to be special. I can think of no better way to make it so than with a bottle or two of this caliber.
