Reviews
"The wine of the vintage, the 1966 Latour is a classic, old style Bordeaux that has required decades to become drinkable. A dark, opaque garnet color is followed by a fabulous nose of cedar, sweet leather, black fruits, prunes, and roasted walnuts, refreshing underlying acidity, sweet but noticeable tannin, and a spicy finish. This powerful, vigorous, immensely impressive, concentrated Latour has reached its plateau of maturity, where it will remain for another 10-20 years.

"The Latour ’66 remains one of the great wines of the vintage. This bottle has a lovely, fresh bouquet that continues to scream “Pauillac” at the top of its voice. Pencil lead, cedar, dark berried fruits, a touch of tar with exceptional definition and focus. The palate is very well balanced with stern, rigid tannins, very foursquare but excellent depth and penetration. There is a saline tang lingering on the grippy, stout, conservative but citrus fresh finish. Excellent and upstanding. Tasted December 2010." Neil Martin Wine Journal
