Kompromisløse 1. Cru Château Latour

I april 2012 cementerede Château Latour præcis hvor kompromisløse de egentlig er - de smed nemlig den største bombe man kan forestille sig i det etablerede Bordeaux etablissement; man ønskede ikke længere at være en del af en primeur systemet, hvor vinene sælges purunge og hvor de ofte ender som investeringsobjekter. Man kan derfor ikke længere købe Château Latour som traditionel primeur-vin i den nyeste årgang hvert år i april/maj måned. Siden da har slottet selv opbevaret deres vine for at frigive dem i mindre batches efterhånden som Team Latour mener de kan drikkes og nydes. Det betyder i praksis at der frigives meget små batches og at en årgang sagtens kan frigives flere gange til salg, alt efter hvor i sin vinøse udvikling vinen er. Le Grand Vin - Château Latour 1. Cru Ved frigivelsen har vinen fortsat et langt liv foran sig - Robert Parker spår generelt minimum 3 årtier alt efter årgang. Vinen har adskillige gang opnået de maksimale 100P fra de internationale vinkritikere.

This will be by far the biggest release since Latour brought in the new system, as the 2012 has not been on the market before. It's a good one to start with as this is a vintage where the drinking window is starting to come into view. This is pure liquorice, graphite and profoundly dark fruits, gourmet brushed damson and crushed stones, with a silky, appealingly open texture. The tannins are as bracing as you hope for from this estate, not giving an inch yet, but there is air between them and the structure is starting to loosen up. Harvest from September 24 to October 16, under rainy conditions after a super hot summer and early September that ensured the grapes stayed in good condition, but turned the concentration from impenetrable to an altogether more approachable style. Drinking Window 2022 - 2050.

The 2012 Latour is a blend of 90.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.6% Merlot and 0.2% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet colored, the nose slowly, measuredly emerges with notions of preserved Morello cherries, baked blackcurrants and blackberry compote, giving way to nuances of pencil shavings, unsmoked cigars, Chinese five spice and sandalwood plus ever so subtle hints of cardamom and eucalyptus. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black and red fruit preserves with a firm, grainy-textured frame and fantastic freshness, finishing with a veritable firework display of lingering spices and minerals. This is a more restrained, relatively elegant vintage of Latour that may not have that "iron fist in a velvet glove" power of the greatest vintages but nonetheless struts its superior terroir and behind-the-scenes savoir faire with impressive panache. It is drinking nicely now with suitably rounded-off, approachable tannins, and the tertiary characters are just beginning to bring some more cerebral elements into the compote of temptingly primary black fruits. But, if you're looking to drink it in full, flamboyant swing, give it another 5-10 years in bottle and drink it over the next 20-25 years+ .
