Château Latour Grand Vin Pauillac 2006

Ch. Latour 2006 is the wine of the vintage. The pure, dark chocolate and cassis nose is followed by a palate of enormous intensity with lashings of cool blackberries and cream, minerals, cedar and coffee. The length of the finish is astonishing too - as if the wine is still in your mouth. Engerer says he did not aim for power in 2006 but a classical richness and lively minerality - the result is similar in style to the 'intellectual' 2005 'at the crossroads of elegance and refinement and power and richness'. He's right; it's very nearly as good too.

The 2006 Latour’s inky/ruby/purple color precedes pure aromas of red and black fruits, high tannin, medium body, impressive sweetness and purity as well as a long finish. Thirty-eight percent of the production (about 10,000 cases) made it into the final blend (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc). A modern version of the 1986 and 1996, the slightly austere 2006 will need a decade of aging. It should keep for 40-50 years.
