Château Latour--Vintage 1987
Pauillac, 1er cru classé. Château-bottled
1987 exemplifies the extraordinary overall quality of the decade of the vintages. Not a single "off" vintage, thanks to good weather conditions - and careful selection of grapes at the better châteaux. Though not as fine as the '85 or as firm as the '86's and '88's, useful wines to drink whilist the latter two vintages are maturing. Latour is developing quickly, has a sweet nose and is lean and flavoury. Nice now. M.B.
