Pauillac de Latour
The 2012 Le Pauillac de Chateau Latour has a pleasant strictness on the well-defined bouquet with black fruit laced with fine mineralite for a third wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy core of fruit, an almost pastille-like purity, smooth in the mouth with a caressing, quite rounded finish. It might have just put on a little weight since I last tasted it. Drink this now and over the next 7-10 years. Tasted March 2017.
