Château Latour--Vintage 1945
Pauillac, 1er cru classé.
Top-shoulder level, deep color; dusty label
"Now more forthcoming, fully evolved, fragrant, spicy Cabernet
Sauvignon, cinnamon and eucalyptus, worth giving time in the glass.
Still full-bodied, crammed with fruit, extract, flesh. Great length.
Tannins ameliorating but still gripping it firmly. Over the last
25 years, 22 bottles, and only one poor one. Five stars. Drink now
to well into the next century." JMB
