Château Latour--Vintage 1981
Pauillac, 1er cru classé. Château-bottled
Originally overshadowed by the 1982, the 1981 red Bordeaux, though still undervalued, are being more fully appreciated. Very much a claret man's claret. Latour a good example, fairly full bodied, as can be expected of Latour, with a bouquet of cedar and cabernet sauviginon and a lovely crisp fruity flavour. M.B.
