Château Latour--Vintage 1979
Pauillac, 1er cru classé. Château-bottled
A prolific harvest, the biggest in Bordeaux since 1934, yet deep coloured and tannic. Latour still a dark cherry red with an extraordinary rich, almost rustic nose and flavour. A chunky, man's wine, still tannic. Drink or keep. M.B.
